Located in Edmonds, WA, we are in the early design phases for a new custom home with sweeping westward views of the Puget Sound. The design is integrated into the existing slope, carefully placed to accommodate the invisible lines of building setbacks, height restrictions and various easements. The owners requested that all the primary spaces be on one level, affording them continued accessibility for years to come. As a result, the main floor is perched amongst the tree canopies and sited to capture views towards the water while also providing privacy from adjacent neighbors. On the lower level, a smaller footprint provides secondary functions and a seamless connection to the outdoors. A series of decks and patios under deep roof overhangs create multiple protected spaces that can extend outdoor living through the shoulder seasons.
We are beginning to explore an exterior color palette of medium to dark earthy hues, looking at high-durability and low-maintenance materials that can gracefully move from outdoors to indoors in certain locations throughout the home. We look forward to working with our clients to further develop the details as we progress through this next phase of design!
