Text description provided by the architects. This small guest house is located as close to Lake Washington as permitted by code. The structure is elevated above a patio to preserve the flat portion of the site for outdoor use. Concrete retaining walls set into the steep hillside provide for an entry courtyard.
A roof deck above the main living areas provides the inhabitants their own private lookout towards the Lake. The roof and walls of the structure are clad with a flat-seam copper siding system.
