A big house mulled up with unique modern facts in Seattle have finished the project by Stuart Silk Designers. The Washington Park Hilltop House set on a bluff directing Lake Washington and makes the most of its locality in terms of spectacular sights: “Views of the vast lake, Mt. Rainier and North Cascades dictated the orientation and transparency of the raise facing the water. A plan then evolved to integrate water landscapes into the home, to be experienced from inside and out.
Water is the main theme of the residence and learning it in the general design of the project can be an interesting endeavor. The plan of the residence is based on the letter H, where the entry, living and dining areas are envisioned in a central pavilion, while flanking wings contain the family’s private rooms: “The ways to the wings are compressed between gently moving water courses inspired by the canals of Suzhou and Venice. These serve not only as ever-present reminders of the beauty of water, but also the nature of passage through life as one navigates across the home’s interior and exterior spaces. The alignment of the canals also focuses the building’s orientation toward the views“.
