1402 Lake Sammamish


Four waterfront houses designed for the shores of Lake Sammamish, Washington, address the terrain, views and particular site conditions to arrive at four unique solutions. Situated down a private drive through wooded grounds is this expansive 6,000 SF villa that negotiates the terrain from the higher level entry to the lower level beach. The entire upper floor volume (bedrooms and entry) is enveloped in a green roof and vine-covered green screen. Sandwiched between this upper floor and the ground plane is a generous glass-enclosed living area, (sitting, library, dining, kitchen and family room) surrounded entirely by nature. A gently sloping shade garden uphill and the lake view panorama downhill.
