Rick Sundberg from Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen completed the design of this modern home with a cantilever that’s nestled into a hillside on Mercer Island, Washington.
Dark-stained cedar siding wraps the exterior of the private areas, while the public spaces are clad with copper panels, which over time will develop a rich patina.
Stepping inside, the interiors have a cozy and intimate feeling, with lowered ceilings and a blackened, steel-faced fireplace in the living room helping to achieve this. The living space is wrapped by a band of clerestory windows that fill the interiors with balanced light.
A blackened steel staircase that leads down to the lower floor of the home.
