Apple Farm House

Clad in a mixture of pine and concrete, the Apple Farm House blends into its mountainous setting. The home sits on an elevated plot facing south, allowing for extensive views of the neighboring mountains. Along with being a small refuge after retirement — consisting of just two bedrooms, a living room, and a kitchen — the house also serves as a farmhouse for the couple's apple orchard. The oversized roof creates an outdoor workspace, providing protection from the sun and the rain. Located at the front of the house, this covered terrace allows for the surrounding scenery to be enjoyed while finishing their daily tasks.

  • Courtyard House on a River

    Just outside of Seattle on the edge of the White River, the Courtyard House on a River sits in a grove of evergreens. The dark facade, created by planks of blackened Western red cedar, blends the contemporary form into its forest setting. A courtyard made from a bed of gravel leads to a covered terrace, acting as both a passage from the outdoors as well as a refuge from the wandering elk. The terrace is separated from the interior living area by a double-sided steel fireplace. Once inside, white walls and wood beams contrast the exterior and develop a warm, modern palette. Along with welcoming in generous amounts of natural light, walls of glazing allow for extensive views of the surrounding forest bed.

  • Magnolia House

    Named after its Seattle neighborhood, the Magnolia House brings contemporary design and traditional fixtures under the same roof. Clean lines and dark gray lacquer dominate the exterior facade. Tall grid windows add interest to the otherwise simple form, while bathing the interior in loads of natural light. Internally, classic elements of marble and hardwood harmonize with modern furniture for a balanced aesthetic. A set of stairs leads to a personal yoga studio. Surrounded by glazing, the tranquil space leads out to a private rooftop deck.
