Mercer Island Residence

Mercer Island, Washington

Carefully sited on a wooded parcel with steep slopes, this residence for a growing family maximizes daylight and reaches upward to capture the view of Lake Washington. The massing of the structure accommodates outdoor living and access to the landscape, while maintaining the privacy of the site. A dynamic interior program allows flexibility, while separating the private areas from the common entertaining spaces. The project involves coordination with environmentally sensitive areas to create a plan that treads lightly on the land.
