Architecture firm HELIOTROPE have designed this home in Seattle, Washington for a couple, an artist and an engineer, that wanted a contemporary style, but not out of place with the rest of the Capitol Hill neighborhood, lots of natural light, an interior with an art-gallery-feel and a separate guest wing.

 

The contemporary home is clad in stained cedar, and includes a variety of custom features throughout, like the wood framed windows, while the flooring is a combination of polished concrete, tile, and myrtle wood.

In the bathroom, custom cabinets and the Japanese soaking tub have both been made using Western Red cedar. Pastel green tiles and frosted glass give the bathroom a relaxed feeling.
