The Orchard modern-exterior

The Orchard

This single family home in the Greenlake neighborhood of Seattle is a modern home with a strong emphasis on sustainability. The house includes a rainwater harvesting system that supplies the toilets and laundry with water. On-site storm water treatment, native and low maintenance plants reduce the site impact of this project. This project emphasizes the relationship between site and building by creating indoor and outdoor spaces that respond to the surrounding environment and change throughout the seasons.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The architects emphasized the relationship between the site and the building by creating indoor and outdoor spaces that respond to the surrounding environment and the changing seasons. The rain garden is an important part of the storm-water management system and an integral part of the landscape design.
