H2 Office Renovation

Seattle, WA

A Day at the Office

H2 Design + Build headquarters began as a dilapidated, stud-bearing box in need of just about everything. H2 quickly got to work and transformed the 300+ sq. ft. space into something they could be proud of.

Getting Started

H2 reinforced the necessary beams, siding, and leaking roof, and replaced all doors and windows. The team leveled out the floor with self leveling concrete, applied new sheet rock, and created a small enclosed space for the powder room in the Southeast corner of the structure.

The Comforts of Home

Katie wanted the office space to feel like the H2 brand, timeless traditional details with modern lines and amenities. After placing the powder room, office desk, and a Smeg fridge, she had a given amount of space remaining to design and place a small kitchenette.

Curb Appeal is a Plus

Looking past the original dilapidated state of the building, what appealed to H2 most was that it was detached, which would allow Katie to work her magic on the entire structure and not have to be dependent on the surrounding buildings for curb appeal.

A Workable Atmosphere

All the bins, baskets, and drawer storage in the office help keep things tidy and organized, making the creative environment conducive to getting things done.

A Residential Feel

Each unique piece has it’s role in the overall aesthetic of the space and are all important in creating the finished residential feel.

White Done Right

H2 gave the structure a fresh coat of Benjamin Moore’s Simply White, inside and out. Katie designed a simple wood and metal awning to hang over the entry door only, which allowed the natural light to really stream inside the remaining widows and doors.
