Mercer Island Contemporary Craftsman

This contemporary craftsman home, set on the sloping, wooded shores of Lake Washington, is the canvas for a series of sweeping stone walks and grass pathways. These landscape components complement the architecture and soften the transition from home to hillside, creating a procession through a sequence of intimate garden rooms. Several garden patios provide more traditional spaces that invite visitors out to enjoy and explore further reaches of the garden.

Adjacent to the entry sits a fountain court. From this formal space visitors can view the rose garden, fan-shaped planting beds elegantly contrasting with the backdrop of a softer landscape. This view, where a designed space gives way to the more organic form of the hillside, epitomizes the intent of the design.
