Flowing Lake Residence

May 15th, 2011

Everything about this home brings up a random, undefined wave of nostalgia. Growing up I was never around homes like this, but the surrounding woods look all too familiar. If I was to pick my favorite part about this house I would have to say it would be the use of the dark vertical siding for its color palette. The palette is a really natural reflection of the surrounding trees.

Located in Snohomish, Washington
Architect: David Vandervort Architects

    I like the stairs in the tenth photo very much, it describes how solid the ground floor feels, and how it is not flat, but flows along the terrain and out each end of the building, more like the enclosure is placed lightly onto a solid terrain. The differentation to the 2nd level is great as well, while it still feels solid with use of good materials, its lighter.

    The clean lines and the timelessness of the design is something that never goes out of style no matter what time period you are in.This house is always sexy.
