This Washington Lake House Is All About The Breathtaking Views

Designed by Prentiss Balance Wickline Architects, this modern lake house is gracefully situated on the northern shores of Lake Washington in Kenmore, Washington.

Facing some unique design challenges, this project found itself within an environmentally and code-regulated terrain, marked by a dramatic forty-foot grade change.

The first, mirroring the undulating slope, seamlessly integrates the house into the site, while the second turns to extend across the grade, elevating toward the water’s edge.

On the exterior facade, the stone is 12×24 tiles of black slate. The roof is a standing-seam metal roofing.

In the kitchen, the wood here is maple plywood — used throughout the house, including (as you can see in the upper left corner) on some of the ceiling.

The chandelier suspended above the staircase is the Artemide Logico.

In this serene bedroom, the windows are Hope’s steel windows. The ceiling light fixtures are low-voltage Juno 4″ recessed can lights. The ceiling material is maple-veneer sheets of plywood, inlaid with thin pieces of steel for some variety between panels.

The material on the right is custom precast concrete tiles. The paint on the left is Benjamin Moore.
