The Woodway residence is located in Washington and is designed by Seattle architecture firm Schuchart Dow. This Northwest contemporary home is comprised of 11,000 square feet and is the result of the ownerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s desire for privacy, love of nature and deep appreciation for craftsmanship and design. The propertyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s seclusion and expansive, picturesque landscape, was perfectly suited for the ownerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s varied menagerie of animals, including horses, as well as their interest in botany and landscaping.
A high level of construction expertise was required to execute the design, which included insulated architectural concrete for many of the exterior and interior walls and floors, basalt countertops, a post-and-beam structure of reclaimed Douglas Fir, large overhangs to create a sense of shelter to natural elements while still remaining open to them, and turn-coated stainless steel siding. The simple and rugged Northwest palette of materials and colors, open floor plan, resulted in a muscular and sophisticated structure that creates an intimate relationship with the natural world. Via
