Our client wanted a contemporary home that would serve as both an exciting and relaxing oasis. The home is comprised of a cluster of seemingly disparate forms that from the exterior abut one another at odd angles. This melding of geometric shapes is accentuated by a mix of contemporary and industrial materials that intersect seamlessly lacking any unnecessary detail.
As you approach the home from the street you pass thru a series of patios and gardens and enter the home, which opens up to expansive views of Portage Bay and the University of Washington beyond. The interior spaces are arranged around a sloping 16 feet high window that provides an abundance of natural light and air that serves as a gallery space for the owner’s extensive eclectic art collection. The high ceilings in the house allow the home to feel much larger than it’s modest 1200 sf.
