Brilliant renovation of a modern Tudor home overlooking Lake Washington

A modern Tudor home has been renovated for family living by DeForest Architects in collaboration with Ore Studios, located in Seattle, Washington. Built in 1931, this beautiful 5,000 square foot home features warm materials and plenty of original details. However, it suffered from a cramped layout and lacked a connection to its park-like property overlooking Lake Washington.

 The young family who purchased this dwelling requested that the architects reimagine the interior layout, yet maintain the essential character of the exterior facade. On the interior layout, the kitchen was flipped to the garden side of the property, opening it up to the yard while flooding it with natural light. An open layout was created with the main living spaces, while a new open stair connects top to bottom. Period charm is complemented with modern architectural details.

The interior designers selected all of the finishes and fixtures, for the re-organized first floor of the house. Exposed steel structural members help create larger rooms, and this material language informed the selection of supporting finishes. The furnishing and decoration of the house was undertaken at the same time, and reflects a more contemporary point of view. Clean silhouettes and expert tailoring ensure modern pieces feel appropriate within the more traditional Tudor envelope.

what i find most fascinating about this renovation (and i agree that it is a brilliant renovation) is that, if you were inside the house, you would never know that it was a traditional tudor style joint on the outside. i probably would have gone for something a bit more modern in appearance than subway tiles, though. what is the wall covering used in images 14-1 and 15-1 (it appears to be a study of some sort)?
