Nestled into a Mercer Island hillside, this gorgeous intimate 2-story residence by Sundberg Kennedy Ly-Au Younger Architects emphasizes craft, materiality and the connection to the outside. A clear demarcation of public and personal spaces is reflected both in the design and style and selection of materials, with the entertaining spaces clad, within and out, in copper panels, blackened steel, and concrete, even though the private master suite—with its exterior wood siding and interior wood floors, lower ceiling height and light-colored walls—exudes a more intimate feel. To make the most of the views toward Lake Washington and Seward Park, the upper floors had been made to contain the principal sleeping and residing regions, with the assistance spaces contained on the ground degree beneath.
Rick Sundberg collaborated with local craftspeople to create some of the home’s compelling specifics, which includes the entry and interior doors, blackened steel staircase, glass and metal chandelier, interior copper panels, and a dining table of wood, steel and concrete.
My favored component of this beautiful property is the open program layout. The public areas of the property are big, spacious nevertheless inviting!
