A 1930s Spanish-Style Home Designed by Lionel Pries

Located in a historic neighbourhood in Seattle, stands this 1930s Spanish-style house. The house was designed and built by designer and architect Lionel Spies. He drew inspiration from historic Spanish/Mexican design movements creating this wonderful home.

Design firm Hoedemaker Pfeiffer have redesigned this historic home for their clients. Bringing back those Spanish/Mexican influences and adding an extension for a new kitchen, butler’s pantry and sunroom.

The clients wanted to counter the historic architecture with more modern interiors. You can find many mid-century design classics in this home from designers like Guillerme et Chambron, Charles Dudouyt and Arne Norell.
