An Open Relationship
Steel and concrete are offset by open spaces in a modern Pacific Northwest residence.
- In Balance
The design blends dynamism and repose, creating tension between complex tectonic elements and expressively quiet volumes.
- Raw Materials
The three-storey home creates interplay between exposed cast-in-place concrete, steel and engineered wood products.
The residence is characterized by many environmental features, such as passive solar design, a clerestory venting system and use of local materials.
- Eye Candy
The structural form is composed of several thin, cantilevered elements that provide intriguing viewpoints around the site.
From the north, a large metal roof tops the house, which in turn opens up to views to the southwest.
