Nils Finne the artchitect's design
Finne. He designed a woven-like pattern from Douglas fir and satin-edge glass.
"I often push my clients to give up space by combining rooms," says Finne. "For example, having a family room where everyone hangs out and a formal living room no one ever uses is a waste of space."
Built-in storage saves space in the dining room. The carved wood details continue along these drawers; Finne was careful to use the pattern in the right dosage. "The pattern is 12 inches high. I like to incorporate large, flat surfaces to provide relief," he says. In the dining room, he used resin panels.
Finne enlisted a local glass studio to kiln-fire shards of Starphire glass into a 1-inch-thick breakfast bar. Starphire is a brand of low-iron glass — the less iron, the less of a green hue glass has."The glass has a Milky Way–like wispy pattern to it," says Finne. "The glass becomes magical when you turn on the uplights."

A 1/4-inch-thick custom metal valence camouflages the bathroom window's extensive shades. "I am always interested in taking a cold, industrial material like steel and applying cutting-edge technology to transform it into something organic," Finne says. "This pattern is lyrical and delicate; the steel is no longer cold and industrial."
The stained concrete tub surround also serves as a shower bench, blurring the line between the bathtub and shower areas.
The bathroom repeats the Plyboo and quartz from the kitchen.
