Lake Washington provides an inspiring backdrop to this modern family home

The setting of Lake Washington provides the perfect backdrop for this modern family home designed by DeForest Architects, located in Seattle, Washington. This home’s beautiful surroundings inspired many of the incredible design details throughout. The owners are a family of artists who wanted a house that would encourage creating and viewing art; connecting with nature, friends and family.

A boomerang shaped plan was drafted by the architects, nestling into the hillside while framing views of Mt. Rainier and Lake Washington. Multi-panel sliding doors provide large openings on the main level. These gather an abundance of daylight as well as blur the line between inside and out.

Outdoor spaces are strongly connected to the living areas of the home and provide ample space for social gatherings. A Family Room anchors one end of the home, while a multi-purpose Studio anchors the other. Circulating between these magnet spaces encourages interaction among family and friends, an important quality to the outgoing owners.

The ‘boomerang skew’ in the floor plan is a dynamic response for direct views of Mt. Rainier from key spaces in the home. This translates into a feeling of movement in the forms and surfaces of the residence.

What We Love: The project team did a fantastic job of designing living spaces to have a strong inside/outside connection. Unique design features geared towards creating, entertaining, and showcasing the soul of these artistic homeowners can be found throughout this dwelling. Artful details, custom furnishings and wow-factors is what sets this lake house apart and makes it special for its lucky inhabitants.
