Coop 15 Architecture

Space and materials are layered on this sloping Mercer Island site, extending the earth's strata skyward. Water bisects the house at the entry, defining an "escape" wing used for media or quiet retreat. A concrete base supports brick and wood siding, with a metal roof floating cloudlike above. Designed for the family of an industrial designer, the plan is open and glassy, with horizontal layering repeated in the interior details.

Anyone know what type of tree this is and whether or not it has been trimmed and shaped to look like this way? Thanks!

Hi Denise,

That's a Japanese Pine Tree, they grow in that form: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinus_thunbergii

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The dusk shot of this house in Seattle illustrates another aspect of "brows": the ceiling and eave often appear continuous, tying outside and inside together. That effect is particularly evident here given the full-height glass exterior walls, which most likely necessitate the large overhang.

Like: 1) Cantilevered roof 2) Open, airy room beneath cantilever 3) Adjacent "heavy" blocked area or wall next to open, airy room (but don't like the stone or concrete blocks / bricks they used).

I like the projecting roof and the large windows. The degree of modernism is fine with me, but could become dated. For this reason I would prefer on non-flat roof.
