House in Seattle, Washington by Miller Hull

July 13, 2008

This award winning house on Seattle’s Mercer Island was built ten years ago, and designed by the Miller Hull Partnership.  It’s currently for sale at $1,150,000.

From the listing agents:

Built in 1998 by the Miller|Hull Partnership, this compact, low maintenance, open house, defies the boundaries of inside and out. Nestled in a  ravine on Mercer Island, the three-story residence balances the edginess of steel and concrete with the warmth of wood, floating in the green hillside.

A 9’ x 10’ wood and glass vertical lift door opens the main floor living area to a bridge-like deck–transforming the space into an intimate, outdoor room. At the top of the house, the master suite is a flexible space due in large part to interlocking panels and a bridge that offer different degrees of privacy and spaciousness. The lower level is made with concrete blocks that have been punched with glass block windows to let in light and bring a sense of coziness to the two bedrooms and play area. Floor-to-ceiling bookcases and a built-in desk transform a staircase landing into a small home office.
