This 7,000 s.f. residence for a professional couple and their daughter is perched on a steeply sloping site at the southern tip of Mercer Island, and commands a panoramic view of southern Lake Washington and Mount Rainier. The schematic design of the project was particularly challenging in that the property was purchased with a concrete foundation already in place. The village-like cluster of forms is highlighted by five curving barrel vaults clad in standing seam copper, and rich color.
