Mercer Island Residence

Located on Mercer Island, Washington, the entrance to this home features a cedar trellis and curving copper roof. The wood columns are modeled after the Greene and Greene style of the early 1900’s, with iron bands, fashioned by a local blacksmith, binding the wood together. Each column is scribed in stone, reinforcing the architectural tie between building and nature. Similarly, the rear deck railing combines teak, stainless steel, and woven copper. This railing provides visual weight and substance from the water side, while still allowing views from the upper floor without obstruction. The grill backsplash is formed by metal hammered with a flame detail. The overall design creates a comfortable and inviting space.
