Beautiful mid-century modern home in Lakewood

Lakewood Mid-Century-01-1 Kindesign

This mid-century modern home is situated in the community of Lakewood, just outside of Seattle, Washington. Designed by DeForest Architects, this family home has been completely remodeled into a beautiful property. The design objective was to create a ‘kid-friendly’ home with plenty of grown-up style. There is a large expanse of sliding glass doors that blurs the boundaries between the interior and exterior of the home as well as bringing in plenty of natural light.  The flooring is a decorative concrete topping material called Deco Pour. It is about 1/2″ thick and comes in many colors and aggregates. It is a lot like traditional terrazzo in appearance. The ceiling has been clad with wood throughout all the main living spaces to add warmth to the interiors.

The warm wood ceilings barely save this tired exercise in mid-century modernism. The giant number 2 isn’t quite an appropriate commentary on this house. It’s livable, I suppose. Nice glass walls.
