Extraordinary pavilion house soaks in its forested landscape in Washington

Surrounded by a heavily wooded site, this extraordinary contemporary pavilion house has been designed by Baylis Architects, set in the Grand Ridge Neighborhood of Issaquah Highlands. Issaquah Highlands is a planned community and mixed-use neighborhood in Issaquah, a suburb of Seattle, Washington.

Encompassing 5,500 square feet of sumptuous living space, the architects worked hard to preserve many of the existing tree on the property. Spread out over three levels, this dwelling was carefully sited in a small clearing, which provides the outdoor living spaces with year round sun exposure.

Embedded into a small knoll the residence appears to project out of the site and into the wooded surroundings. The use of sloping metal roofs, architectural concrete walls and cedar siding creates the overall feeling of a “Pavilion in the Woods”.

What We Love: This beautiful pavilion house offers a warm and inviting interior layout with large windows that frame a forested landscape. Soaring ceilings help to create a bright and airy atmosphere, while living spaces flow from one to a next courtesy of an open floor plan. We are especially loving the light drenched living room, with its floor-to-ceiling fireplace and large sectional for family gathering and entertaining. Despite this home’s contemporary design, it feels warm and inviting thanks to wooden elements throughout.

I like the house but am not fond of the cement columns which give the opposite feeling of the warm wood details.
