About This Project

Washington Park Hillside Residence

Located on a plateau above Lake Washington, this decidedly modern home responds to the site and the context of this historical neighborhood through the use of a rich palette of materials which provide a sense of warmth and timelessness. The home is defined formally by a series of three pavilions that are separated by transparent steel and glass “gaskets” that separate the private spaces from the more public living and dining rooms.

The central one story pavilion-like structure with its tall ceilings provides a counterpoint to the stone clad flanking wings; these wings contain the bedrooms and other more private areas of the home. Certification goal: LEED Gold/5-Star Built Green. This home is the winner of the 2012 Masonry Institute of Washington Honor Award for Excellence in Masonry Design.
