lake view house
This home on the shores of Lake Washington near Seattle was designed as a retreat from the city, and a center for extended family gatherings in the long summer months. The house takes advantage of the western views across the lake.
The boathouse is a small structure set into the hillside, with a green roof that expands the useful yard area of the house. The natural landscaping works its way down to the water front, creating a buffer for the house.
