Finne Architects in collaboration with Schultz Miller has transformed an existing 1950’s Northwest contemporary house into a glass pavilion on a secluded, wooded site just outside of Seattle, Washington. With extensive new windows and glazed roof monitors, the renovated house appears to be a glass pavilion in the forest.

The floor plan has been re-organized to create a spacious, light-filled primary bedroom and primary bath, with each space surrounded by glass and views to the forest. The main living, dining and spaces have been slightly enlarged, with high windows has been added to bring soft natural light to the entire space.

The glass wall between the master bedroom and master bathroom has been transformed with the use of a hand-drawn pattern in etched glass, with the pattern being more dense at the bottom (for a sense of privacy) and increasingly transparent at the top.

Sustainable design practices includes radiant under floor heating throughout, high clerestory windows bring natural light deep into the house and motorized operators allow for venting during summer months. Many green materials (such as resin panels, quart counters, linoleum, low VOC paint, and sustainable wood products) were used in the project.

What We Love: This luminous glass pavilion house is in perfect harmony with its woodland site. The home’s attractive exterior facade has a quiet yet powerful presence in the landscape. Expansive walls of glass along with light monitors in the roof helps to floor the interior living spaces with natural light. The heavy use of wood on the interior helps to infuse cozy warmth into this spectacular home.
