Zipper house

It always seemed odd to me that I never see these beautiful houses while out and about. But then again, if you have the money to build an amazing house, chances are you’ll have the money to properly gate it or purchase secluded property. In this case though, this house was built smack dab on a steep hill just outside of Seattle.

After coming across the house on Deforest Architect’s website I realized that I had seen it before while it was being constructed. By its looks at the time, it appeared substantially nicer than any of the surrounding houses. Because of that I had assumed it was an oddly placed office building rather than a home.

As you go inside the house it opens up with a modern, metal and wood theme. The wood is even complimented by the metal of two turntables and a mixer atop a small, raised cove above the living room.

Beautiful. Also, I love how you never see someone using a PC laptop in photos of a space like this. (note the gentleman in the background on shot #4 of the kitchen-best advertising in the world is the most subtle)

This house is gorgeous. The interior space using wood finish and the exterior using a similar wood finish in the same way ties them together beautifully.
