Rhodes Architecture + Light, Seattle Architect

Mary Anderson Gardens Rhodes Architecture Light designed this group of four residences in 2000-2001. Located above the Olmstead-designed Lincoln Park and looking west to Vashon Island and the Olympic Mountains, the land had been owned by Mary and Lloyd Anderson since 1932. The Andersons started and ran Recreational Equipment Incorporated (REI) from the site after 1938. Rhodes Architecture Light designed an extensive renovation of the original house in 2000 and three new residences in 2001. All four houses surround a large garden dedicated to Mary Anderson who was a Master Gardener. I was asked to incorporate the soul of the original farmhouse in small (under 2000 square feet), carefully crafted houses that were sensitive to the site. Anderson Gardens was featured in NW Home and Garden Magazine , Cottage Living Magazine , and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer .

Mary Jo Bowling added this to Inglenooks Carry On a Warm Tradition
When building this new house in 2001 on Washington’s Vashon Island, Rhodes Architecture + Light was inspired by the nearby Mary and Lloyd Anderson farmhouse, built in 1932 by the founders of REI.

The fireplace here is what really makes this space warm. However, you're not going to want to make a fire every night of the season. That's why it's so great to put some stylish candles on your fireplace mantle. Light them instead on nights when a fire feels like too much work and you'll still be able to cozy up here with some warm light.

idea of candles on the mantle. I'd like to put some in front of the fireplace instead of on top.
