Lake Washington Residence

This Lake Washington Residence is a 4,000 square foot home designed by Miller Hull Architects. It was built on Mercer Island overlooking Lake Washington, just outside of Seattle. It faces outward from the edge of a steep hill and heavily forested area over the lake. The view alone is just as captivating as the actual house.

The main entrance of this residence is from the hillside above via a bridge to the third floor. The uppermost level of the residence is used as a place for guests to stay. The residence was designed to be naturally ventilated where the main staircase would pull air up and through the house. I do wonder how well insulated the home is.

Wow Laurence, what a small world. Do you know the owners? I’d love to get a tour of this house (I’m based in Seattle).

Norman where did you see the $8 Million price tag?

Very nice. I love how the ipe is trimmed out with the metal bands at the corners. Looks very precise and finished.

I like this building, because the material used adequate with the nature. As if its part of the nature, and compatibility of the materials with each other. As well as the use of day light and transparency materials. In addition what discriminate this building that it has no curves.
