This architectural artwork designed by Miller Hull Partnership knows no bounds. Set in a ravine on Seattle’s Mercer Island, this is where nature meets architecture; where outside comes in; where cozy comforts have a cool, modern edge. This contemporary and award-winning single-family residence boasts a facade of steel and concrete. This industrial flavor is offset by warm woods and large expanses of glass, and the home’s lush, hillside setting. A bridge-like deck measuring nine by 10 ft. leads residents and guests to a wood-and-glass “vertical lift” door, which opens to the main living area and transforms the deck into an outdoor room. Inside, four bedrooms, three baths and three spacious storeys are finished with woods, from floor to ceiling. Where you won’t find wood, you’ll find yourself peering through the glass walls and into surrounding nature. This beautiful modern house is for sale for $1,150,000.
