We worked closely with architect Rick Sundberg and the team at Sundberg Kennedy Ly-Au Young Architects to create a well-crafted, open home with dramatic views of Puget Sound.
The house was designed for a couple who enjoys making and displaying crafts and entertaining family and friends. It features a soaring multipurpose space and includes a detached garage/workshop with a studio apartment above it. Natural materials are used throughout, including Port Orford cedar, rift-sawn oak, and Amarosa limestone. The exacting finish details required precise work by the Schultz Miller crew.
A big leaf maple from the property produced stair treads, wood for the front door, the dining table, and other furniture and fixtures. The front door is a striking composition of maple planks and aluminum and steel elements that have been flame-sprayed with bronze and then sanded and patinated. The colorful door to the powder room is a “metal quilt” created by artist Arunas P. Oslapas.
Obscured from view on the roof, a large array of solar panels produces more electricity than the owners use. In-floor radiant heating keeps the house comfortable, despite the extensive glass and high ceilings.
