Rainier Ave S


Seattle, WA

Waterfront property with view across Lake Washington inspired the orientation, site layout and window placement for all three of these three homes, which terrace up the sloping site. Each home features a private garage and recreation level, with an open plan living level and bedrooms above, each enjoying strategically designed water views. Deep overhangs shelter generous decks that allow for year-round enjoyment of the stunning natural setting. A bioplanter at the low end of the site mitigates stormwater runoff and portions of an existing pier were removed, enhancing the quality of the salmon habitat in Lake Washington.
