This inner Seattle home atop Phinney Ridge features living and outdoor terrace spaces that overlook the city and distant Olympic mountains. The home is modern yet relaxed. Concrete landscape walls are interlaced with a flowing paver pattern, and a city required retention pond is now a landscape feature near the front door. Inside, a large art studio opens out onto a terrace above the garage. The kitchen, dining, and living areas are all connected as one open room, with floor to ceiling glass that illuminate the home and expand the city view. Extra insulation combined with a solar panel array atop the flat roof make the home energy efficient and renewably powered.
