Our client approached us to design their forever home in West Bellevue a neighborhood in Bellevue, Washington. The resulting 4,900-square-foot modern custom home features clean lines, smart home features, and personalized spaces. Designed by Archius Architecture and built by Alair Kirkland, it combines elements of modern and minimal design to create a calming, functional, high-end family home.

The project features over 70 windows, skylights, and glazed doors to flood the home with natural light, even in the gray Pacific Northwest winters. Kentwood oak floors lend warmth to the neutral palate throughout the home. Continue below to see the rest of this home tour…

What We Love: This forever home was designed for family living with clean lines and modern details throughout. With attractive curb appeal, you are invited into this fabulous home where light-filled, spacious interiors await. We love the calming feel of this home’s material palette and color scheme along with the warmth of the wood flooring. The staircase adds a dramatic focal point, one of many distinctive details in this residence.

In the primary bathroom we chose walnut cabinets and dark gray wall tile for a dramatic look and to juxtapose the light polished tile used in the walk-in shower and soaking tub area.

In addition to the second-floor study/home gym and laundry room, there is a second guest room with a private balcony and ensuite. Both of the couple’s parents live abroad and often visit for extended periods. Dual guest suites ensure ample privacy for all family members during these visits.
