Bellevue, Washington

This single-family residence is located in the Lake Sammamish community east of Seattle. The house is divided into two volumes — one containing the common areas and the other the private — which bracket an outdoor swimming pool. The design positions the structure between the shoreline of Lake Sammamish and a heavily wooded steep slope. In order to optimize the onsite buildable footprint, BUILD facilitated a complex permitting process, which called for the mitigation of environmentally critical areas and waterfront management. The interior design puts a premium on functional spaces for entertaining, while maintaining the privacy of the home and its residents.
