Conard Romano Architects

This shingle-style home enjoys views up Lake Washington and into Meydenbauer Bay. In response to the sloping, north facing site, the house is elongated east to west to allow south light to penetrate the rooms on the north side. Its three main volumes, each oriented to optimize views and respond to the sloping site, house a library, formal living and dining, and large family room. Each has its own adjacent terrace to provide complementary outdoor space.

Exterior terraces are made of antique granite “planks” salvaged from flooded villages behind China’s Three Gorges Dam, also the source of the driveway cobbles. An earth sheltered guest house, clad in stone, doubles as a pool cabana in the summer months. The three-car garage is designed to support half-court basketball with a sport court floor and glass backboard.

The wall is approximately 5 feet tall with the falls starting at about 50 inches up. Thank you for the comment!

Thank you for your interest in our work. This was custom done and thus there are no blue prints available.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

5. Incorporate a fountain. Like part of a recently unearthed ruin, this stone wall builds up to its highest point in the center, framing a burbling fountain. Backed with tall shrubs for privacy, it would be just right in a small urban lot.
