When this young couple bought the worst house on the dock, everyone was glad someone would finally replace the old eyesore.  The husband had two non-negotiable requirements- a covered deck to watch sports on the living room TV, and a rooftop putting green to hone his short game. For her, extensive cabinetry and storage to put away daily items for a clutter-free environment.  The design strategy arranged the personal spaces on the main level, where privacy was easier to control, and put the living spaces in a large open plan on the second level, where views to the city skyline and surrounding lake environs could be had across adjacent rooftops.  Light colored finishes and carefully placed windows provide a bright, contemporary interior.

This house was awarded an AIA Home of Distinction — see the article in the September 2019 Seattle mag here  >>
