This modern 3200 sf, 3 story home, perched over Seattle’s Burke Gilman Trail, overlooks the eastern shore of Lake Washington and is designed to maximize daily living views of Mt Rainier and the lake.
The structure is expressed through exposed interior glulam beams and stair, as well as a simple combination of metallic concrete board and wood surfaces. This home features sustainably engineered wood flooring, as well as natural stone counters and porcelain tile. The interior is carpet-free, avoiding associated indoor air quality issues through the use of soft, warm and supple engineered cork flooring on the upper (bedroom) level. The design incorporates an open floor plan with in-floor heating and flat roof insulation that exceeds code standards while capitalizing on entertainment and private area views through cantilevered decks to avoid imposing posts.
