This contemporary home was designed for a family of six relocating to the
Pacific Northwest from London, England. The design was conceived as a
blending of elements of the family's London home with their vision of
American houses and the Northwest climate. Simple massing, a sheltering
pitched roof, expressive windows with an influx of natural light and exposed
timber detailing were the basic concepts from which the design evolved.
Additionally, the clients were interested in a quiet elegance, without
superfluous details or add-on elements.
