LAURELHURST GARDEN — Seattle, WA
This large scale remodel of a mid-century modern house by Ibsen Nelson opens up the living and dining areas to take full advantage of the lush landscape and views toward Lake Washington. In collaboration with mw|works, paving and decking are brought into equilibrium for indoor outdoor flow of wood and concrete surfaces on both the ground and walls. A central atrium garden has subtle Japanese influences, and the reflecting pool and fountain create a focal point for the house that can engage all the senses.
