Situated on the eastern shore of Lake Washington, this residence is designed to take advantage of the lake and city views to the west and southwest while maintaining privacy from the neighbors on the remaining three sides. The long, gently sloping lot allows the garage to be embedded into the site on the easterly end of the house while allowing a walkout daylight basement opening to the lakeshore. The glass foyer is centered between the two grading extremes, grounded on a concrete base and captured between two solid walls. The main living areas are open and flow into one another so that the view can be enjoyed from many angles and natural light can penetrate deeply into the interior. Expansive windows and doors allow for the living spaces to open up to the exterior, creating a functional and inviting place for entertaining guests.
