A Seattle studio's courtyard

Facing rising housing costs downtown, Seattle architects Matt Wittman and Jody Estes traded an apartment for a small house in a gritty neighborhood, sensing promise in a deep, skinny lot with a scrap-filled yard. A few years later, enough resources had been collected to create this modern studio. A covered walkway provides a sheltered passage between the main house and studio.
