Architect at Home feature on Arne Bystrom in his Capitol Hill home and studio.

Arne Bystrom, here in his Capitol Hill home office, is never far from wood and, at 80, is still a working architect. “I love little projects like cabins, because clients often give you more authority than when they do their dream house. They’re a lot of fun.” Many years ago, he and Valerie built their own saltwater cabin by hand.

The innovative, influential and imaginative Seattle architect, whose designs earned international and national awards, passed away Aug. 10.  VIEW
