Overlooking Moss Bay, this home is designed to lift up and take advantage of Lake Washington views, while simultaneously connecting to a new garden oasis below. Situated on a site sloping away from the street, the house is entered on the upper floor by a wooden bridge spanning above a rocky wash and placed between a volume of wood and concrete. Continuing beyond the entry, the wood bridge grows into a central outdoor deck with an outdoor fireplace and a broad connection to both the living room and the water views beyond. An expansive roof with exposed wood rafters and light steel columns floats above, allowing light to slip in and warm spaces below. Primary living and dining spaces stretch across the upper floor for the best views and access to sun, while a more enclosed working kitchen for the gourmet chef owner opens to an intimate garden filled with herbs for cooking. This home explores the possibilities of recreating a better suburban landscape and generating a house that responds to that.
