Designs Northwest Architects - with offices in Stanwood, Snohomish County, Washington – have worked hard on the Thomas Eco-House project, but the results are extraordinary. Resting on an 11 acre site in the Cascade foothills of Stanwood, the four-story high modern residence overlooks Mt. Rainier and Everett City to the South, while being surrounded by fresh air from wooded hills and native vegetation. The contemporary design is defined by energy efficiency and sustainable low maintenance features. Insulated concrete forms (ICF) – “two layers of rigid form insulation between which concrete is poured” – shaping the residential structure ensure a good thermal and acoustic insulation, while the extensive use of glass captured in between the long lasting and low maintenance stucco-finished walls allow the owners to enjoy those beautiful surroundings I was telling you about earlier.

The open floor plan on the main living space includes the kitchen, dining and living spaces, while moving up a floor reveals the bedrooms and a reading loft opening to the living room below. Guests are welcomed on the lower floor, where the space includes a media room, a family room, bedroom and bathroom for a relaxing visit. Polished concrete floors adorn each floor and give the home a modern feel. A fire pole on the upper floor and the rooftop observation space called the “Bubble” are the most exciting residential features the Thomas Eco-House has to offer, but there are other beautiful design details I will let you discover for yourself from the photos below. Enjoy and share your opinions!
