Mount Baker Residence by Pb Elemental Architecture

July 29, 2008

We’ve posted about the Mount Baker residence in Seattle, Washington before, but never saw much of the interior. Now, thanks to Chris from Pb Elemental Architecture, we’ve got loads of interior photos.

By the way, the house is for sale at $1.149 million, and if any Contemporist readers are in the Seattle area, Modern Dwelling, the company representing the home, is holding an art showing this Thursday, July 31st, 2008 at 7 p.m.  There will be wine and cheese, music and most importantly, original art in a modern home.  The address is 3844 37th Ave S.

From Pb Elemental:

The Mt. Baker Residence is perched on a steep slope high above street level. Massive façade windows and a 400 s.f. roof top deck capture sweeping views of the Rainier Valley to Downtown Seattle. Column-like windows on side elevations of the home provide vertically-strong views, placed to respect the privacy of the adjacent neighbors. The 2,470 s.f. home includes four bedrooms, two and a half baths, and a large open living floor. On the top level, 12’ tall ceilings and walls of glass allow large amounts of natural light to create one grand space for kitchen, dining, and living.

Additionally, the home includes a separate, one bedroom apartment unit (635 s.f.) on the lower level, complete with a wrap-around patio. The structure was conceived as the juxtaposition of three pure volumes, each containing a unique programmatic element. Each element is emphasized by material cladding; cedar panel, cement board, concrete, and marine plywood.
