Warm, outdoor lighting highlights the beautiful natural textures of this cabin home. A concrete walkway leads the way to wooden entryway columns and a blue front door. Stone walls, a rock bed and a mulched yard add lots of neutral colors and rough textures which allows the polished wooden siding to stand out as the focal point.
Drawing inspiration from elegance of the home’s Italian Villa-like elements, this luxurious outdoor space transports family and guests to a Mediterranean retreat. Strong columns and arches and warming fire pots line the stunning, uniquely shaped pool. A circular, elevated infinity spa with chic mosaic tile anchors one end of the space while a crowning pergola with sofa and fire pit create an enchanted lounge space at the other.
The driveway descends down the yard with separated concrete tracks then meets at a large turnaround space and three car garage. The evening lighting highlights landscape lighting shining up in the small planted trees and the bright glow of the garage mounted lanterns. Ornamental grass and small plants provide natural decoration for the drive.
Outdoor lighting highlights the warm tones one the exterior walls of this tropical Puerto Vallarta home. The foliage brings life to the stone structure while a diamond patterned floor adds detail to a traditional outdoor floor.
This Frank Lloyd Wright inspired house is framed by the organic landscape and The Kenneth Cobonpue Yoda Easy Chairs in Bright Red serve up both style and comfort. When evening falls, recessed lights illuminate the front steps and exterior.
This home exterior looks great in the evening light thanks to an expansive wall of windows that also affords residents a great view. The exterior includes wood siding, stone and glass to complement the look of the surrounding mountain landscape.
With a compact form and several integrated sustainable systems, the Capitol Hill Residence achieves the client’s goals to maximize the site’s views and resources while responding to its microclimate. Some of the sustainable systems are architectural in nature. For example, the roof rainwater collects into a steel entry water feature, day light from a typical overcast Seattle sky penetrates deep into the house through a central translucent slot, and exterior mounted mechanical shades prevent excessive heat gain without sacrificing the view. Hidden systems affect the energy consumption of the house such as the buried geothermal wells and heat pumps that aid in both heating and cooling, and a 30 panel photovoltaic system mounted on the roof feeds electricity back to the grid.
