Home with an Intriguing Modern Look : West Seattle Residence

West Seattle Residence was designed by Lawrence Architecture and displays an intriguing contemporary architecture. Concrete, glass and steel were the main materials used to build this house and define its appearance. Here is the official description from the project developers: “A concrete wall up to twenty-four feet high ((7,3 meters) organizes the site and the house: the garage, entry and service spaces are on the street side of the wall, while providing  privacy for the main living space which is a curtain wall-enclosed pavilion.  The wall is also the organizing element for the circulation including the stairs with cantilevered steel treads. Supported on steel frames and  triangular steel trusses, the roof  swoops over the concrete wall capping the pavilion. Eight by sixteen foot sections of the curtain wall pivot for ventilation.  The stair has demountable guardrails which are normally in place but were removed for the photographs. The master bedroom is in a loft space above the kitchen, while a family room, media room, children’s bedrooms and bathrooms occupy the daylight basement level.  There is additional living space above the garage accessible via stair or future elevator.” (photos by Benjamin Benschneider)

    Quite interesting how those industrial materials may look so warm together … Agree with the stairs thing
