Alki Residence
Architect: Michael Gibson
This 5,000 square foot, three-story home was built on a steep slope in the Alki Beach area of West Seattle. The limited access and steep site made this project a challenge from the start.

Edifice Construction installed 25 auger-cast piles and a 25-foot shoring wall using the one-lane road for access. The structure also required a steel moment frame to allow for maximum window area on the water side, to take advantage of the tremendous Puget Sound views.

The curved, soft edges of the residence are complemented by exterior bronze rails streetside, and frameless glass railings on the upper decks on the water side to maintain the view.
