When architect Nils Finne of Seattle-based Finne Architects conceived this contemporary residential design, he had an artful vision of wood and windows intermingling with nature in the Seattle suburb of Redmond. The delicate design offers intricacies imagined impossible in large-scale construction. But this 4,225-sq.-ft. luxury wooden house proves those theories wrong. Both inside and out, this modern home’s meticulous woodwork is simply spectacular, becoming a focal motif of the overall design. “There isn’t a whole lot of drywall in this place. Nature’s my artwork,” owner Julie Burnett told The Seattle Times. Windows appear at every turn, flooding the home with natural light. “During the day I don’t have to turn on the lights, even in winter,” said Burnett. From the grid-patterned exposed ceiling beams to the sleek and polished floors; throughout bedrooms, 3.5 baths, the sprawling 1,100-sq.-ft. kitchen and all living spaces, wood in the king of this castle.
