Luxury Capital Hill property with fabulous views, Seattle

Seattle-based interior designers and architects Balance Associates Architects have designed the Capitol Hill project. Completed in 2012, the luxury property can be found in Seattle, Washington.

According to the design studio: “The contemporary Seattle property is located on a ridge with a 180 degree view of the surrounding lakes and mountains. The form of the house cantilevers off its concrete base on three sides in order to stay within the footprint of the previous house.

“The majority of the glazing is located on the eastern side of the house to capture the view and to provide privacy from neighbours. The center section of the contemporary house is designed as a translucent slot to filter daylight into the core. This area serves as the main circulation space in the house and is planned to contain a translucent stair and bridge.

“Interior design features of this contemporary Washington property include sustainable systems such as a rain water catchment system in the form of an entry water feature, solar panels, and solar shading in addition to our standard sustainable building practices such as high levels of insulation, low-e glazing, and selection of environmentally friendly materials.”
