Yarrow Point Residence

In recognition of the natural constraints on a narrow, wooded site with substantial topographic variation, southern aspect, and small private framed views to Lake Washington, the architect, the landscape architect, and owners worked in symphony to create a design that focused on preservation of the existing vegetation and the detailed arrangement of interior and exterior spaces.

The owners were an integral part of the design process. Their goal was to maintain a strong and vital connection to the site, creating a fusion between home and landscape with a modern edge. To achieve this, the design process required a close collaboration between architect and landscape architect. The landscape design emphasizes structured and formal solutions around the building itself and its social spaces, while the site’s perimeter is soft and natural. The result of these efforts is a strong and clear connection between architecture and garden, integrating a palette of both modern and natural elements.
