Insulated architectural concrete was used for many of the exterior and interior walls and floors, combined with natural stone wall attached to the front and wooden elements for different parts of the house. The modernistic feel is brought back to Earth with “country” details such as he post-and-beam structure of reclaimed Douglas Fir and large overhangs that create a sense of shelter to natural element yet still remain open to them. Large windows in every room give this natural modern house lush, green views thus deepening the connection between inside and outside.
The Modern House Dining Room
Sitting around the table in the dining area will surely be a real pleasure as forest views seem amazing. The Woodway residence has several rooms that have elements such as a traditional Japanese door that slides and is all made of wood. The simple Northwest palette of materials and colors, open floor plan, resulted in a muscular and sophisticated structure with natural tone.
