The little and limited part augments significantly down a precarious slant to lovely Flowing Lake in Snohomish County, Washington. Goliath fir trees possess the western a large portion of; the eastern half was defaced by the past evacuation of a flame harmed lodge. Our test was to make a home for a dynamic, youthful couple which saved the trees and the staying local scene while reaching out toward and augmenting perspectives of and access to the lake.
The arrangement was to first set up a way to the water close by which a house was then set. The way starts at an auto court with its disengaged carport/office. It then plunges past the room wing close by the goliath firs to mid-slant where a glass hall/section obscures the line in the middle of inside and outside.
From here the living territories transparent toward the perspective, its glass façade amplifying both openness to the lake and the restricted amount of light. The upper level Master room with its rooftop porch hovers amongst the trees. These lake related segments of the house are all grasped by the wood clad divider giving protection to the neighbors and centering consideration regarding the perspective.
Downslope from the passage, as the house spans over the way, is a secured yard, then a bunkered porch lastly the lake edge itself with its restored wetland.
The materials of the house are straightforward and normal. This permits the house to merge with the regular landscape so that by day it is hard to detach when seen from the lake, while around evening time the home sparkles reassuringly from inside.
