Tucked behind a Seattle home, this beautiful backyard reading retreat of glass, timber, and tile offers an idyllic escape from city life.
Once rendered unusable by a thicket of overgrown plants, a Montlake backyard belonging to bookstore owners Danielle and David Hulton has been transformed into a modern reading retreat, perfectly crafted for curling up in with a book.

“Before the project came to be, it was hard to visualize how much space there was hidden under all the vegetation,” says local design firm Board & Vellum, who was tapped by the homeowners to renovate the backyard with a new structure and landscaping.
