Adams Mohler Ghillino Architects

Leschi Reisdence was envisioned by studio Adams Mohler Ghillino Architects and is located in Seattle, Washington, USA, overlooking Lake Washington with diagonal views of the Cascade Mountain Range. The project is structured on two levels and has a total living surface of 3300 square feet, including an open living/dining space, master bedroom, children’s bedrooms, bathrooms, the garage and pantry area.
On the site, the architects also developed a semi-detached guest crib. Here is more from the official project description: “The garage anchors the house to the northwest corner of the site while the semi-detached guest quarters is perched above, cantilevering out to create a covered walk to the entry. The main block occupies the opposing corner of the site. Its southeast corner has been entirely removed and replaced with a thirty-foot tall tube steel bracket that supports the sheltering roof above. A steel and wood framed deck is literally suspended from the bracket by a 1” diameter steel rod. The main and upper levels open to the resulting two-story space with 14 foot wide lift & glide glass doors allowing the house to spatially expand and contract in response to the seasons”. Would you consider living in a similar modern nature retreat?
