Mercer Island XV contemporary-entry

Mercer Island XV

The large front entry is effectively a pivoting cedar-clad wall. That door abuts a long concrete wall which guides visitors into the home.

A modest proposal for a family of four, this is a three-bedroom, 2500 square-foot house. There are his-and-hers home offices, a playroom for their two young sons, and a media room that doubles as a guest room. Spaces are organized in two distinct volumes, with primary living spaces and entry combined in a single-story, sloped-roof volume with heated concrete floors. Walls of this volume are clad with cedar reclaimed from the house that was deconstructed, with the planks stripped bare and turned vertically. Deep overhangs provide weather protection for the entry, carport, and covered terrace. The playroom, media room, laundry, offices, bedrooms, and three baths occupy the two-story volume, clad in fiber-reinforced cement siding applied as a rainscreen.
