The completion of Cycle House, in Seattle, U.S.A., was recently unveiled by Chadbourne + Doss Architects. The home is strategically located at the intersection of two major bike routes in the Mount Baker neighborhood, with charming lake and mountain views to the east.

Roof decks, wraparound fenestration, and open space orientation are meant to connect occupants to the site and make the house seem larger than it’s 2,500 square feet“.
