Seattle based architect Peter Cohan has designed this modern house in the view of Lake Washington through its expansive windows which make up a large portion of the home’s facade. This beautiful and contemporary house build at a 5,500 sq.ft. in Seattle, Washington.
The Cedar Park house takes advantage of the prospect afforded by a steep site while at the same time strengthening the fragile slope, reducing the volume of water that threatens to de-stabilize it and minimizing the energy required to do so. The building is formed by the interaction of site-cast concrete walls and water-collecting roofs, each of which respond to the exigencies of the site. At the same time the transparency of the house creates a seamless spatial experience, connecting inside and out.
