Lake Washington Residence with expansive views

Lake Washington Residence-BAAN Design-01-1 Kindesign

Lake Washington Residence is a newly built two story single family home over an existing foundation by BAAN Design in the Mount Baker neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The existing site is located on an upland waterfront lot near Genesee Park on Lake Washington Blvd S with expansive views to the east, over the lake. The foundation of the existing one story house is re-used in order to maintain and extend the non-conforming footprint and lot coverage. The geometry of the front facade is dictated primarily by the view potential offered by the site and the massing is stepped back at second level to maintain conformance to current zoning setback requirements.

The primary interior spaces are designed to relate specifically to the water views to the east and to the more intimate and enclosed privacy of the backyard.

While sitting in the rear yard, one can experience the lake views through the glazed doors and glass along the east and west sides of living areas. The roof structure is constructed of exposed double 2×6 rafters with T&G decking above, and the exterior is cladded in pre-stained, tight-knot cedar siding.
