This one’s been out for a while, but we forgot to tell you about it. The book “The World’s Best Beach Houses”, edited by Mandy Herbet, includes our Seola Beach House in Burien, Washington.

If you already have a copy of “21st Century Beach Houses” that we mentioned in a previous post, then this one is pretty similar. But if not, it has a nice article on our project, as well as other modern beach house architecture.

There’s a nice article about Brooks Dental Studio at the Post Defiance website, with a focus on the integration of art in the space and the dental practice. Artspace B, a gallery with changing installations by local artists, was an important part of the design concept.

And if you’re looking for a dentist in the Tacoma area, especially one with the artsiest office in town, you’ll definitely want to get in touch with Dr. Jamie Brooks

Seattle, Washington

Site

A major alteration of an existing house on a sloping site with a panoramic eastern view of Seward Park, Lake Washington, and Mount Baker. Contrasting the views to the east, the western portion of the site offers more introspective opportunities.

Program

The owners are avid gardeners and wanted the house to be integrated with the landscape while taking advantage of the sweeping view of Lake Washington. The master suite had to share a level (as well as the lake view) with the main living spaces, yet remain private and separate. A flexible use guest suite – a space they could utilize daily or close off for long term guests – was also desired.

Solution

The living room fireplace – a freestanding “monolith” – serves as the anchor and pivot point for the house. It marks the entrance to the main living space, forms a baffle to the sitting room and master suite, and is the low point from which the butterfly roof opens up. At the high end of the roof, a generous deck extends the interior space to the outside. As a counterpoint to this airiness, the guest suite is more intimate and darkly hued opening out to a private courtyard and water feature. Large trees were transplanted from the owners’ previous home, creating the sense of a mature garden.

For those of you haven’t heard about Gray Magazine, a new publication featuring “Pacific Northwest Design”, we recommend checking it out (and subscribing – we do). Our Lopez Island Cabin is featured in the February/March 2012 issue (on newsstands as I write this), and we’re really happy with the quality of the article and photos. The photographer, Alex Hayden, was a real sport dealing with a frustrating day of rain and scattered sunbreaks. Whenever he set up for an inside shot, the sun came out, and when he moved outside it started to rain. It would have been funny – well, it was funny. Nonetheless, Alex managed to capture the essence of the project, the quality of the space, the site, the water, and the rock.

So, click here to find the nearest copy of Gray, go get a copy, and then let us know what you think of the Lopez Island Cabin and Gray Magazine.

These guys must really like us. Images Publishing Group has included us in yet another of their books on architecture and design. This time, our Parks Residence – a condominium remodel in Seattle – is in “21st Century Architecture: Apartment Living” by Beth Browne.

As always, a successful project depends on a successful team, and in this case we had a great time collaborating with:

Of course, the project wouldn’t have been possible without the trust given to us by the owners. They gave us clear input as to their desired outcome, and were always prompt and decisive when issues arose during the process. These qualities were as important to the success of the project as any of the skills of the design and fabrication team.

If you’re interested in apartment & condominium design, there are a lot of interesting examples in this book. You can stop by our office to look at a copy, or buy one for your own library from either of Seattle’s most important booksellers – Amazon or Peter Miller Books.

It’s been a while since we posted our original design proposal and an update on our design process for the Enatai Remodel in Bellevue. The project has since gone through the phases of design development, construction documents, permits, bidding & negotiation, and is just about through construction (by DLH Inc.). As always, we are looking forward to a lengthy and happy “owner occupancy” phase.

For a play by play account of the construction process, you can visit the Enatai Remodel Project Blog.
