The Wood Block Residence by Chadbourne + Doss Architects
Happy Wednesday! Check out this wonderful house on Mercer Island in Washington State. Fronting a busy street, the architect wanted to root the house to its sloping wooded site and provide a protective shelter for family life. The plan is opened up allowing for large family gathering spaces and perspectives throughout the full length of the house. A new metal skin with interior cedar liner wraps over the roof and grounds the house to the site. An aluminum bar grating screen encloses an exterior patio and deck filtering interior views and forming a sparkling and diaphanous wall from the street.
