Apart from the gorgeous lighting the massive indoor garage steals the show as it houses the vintage car collection of the owners with pomp galore. The seamless connection of all the various spatial elements and the wonderful use of available space are only heightened by the placement of smart skylights and slatted blinds. The marble structure coupled with a grand art collection and a display of vintage wheels tells you that this is a house for those who love plenty of indulgence.
Next we see another amazing Seattle property from Vandeventer + Carlander Architects. Highlights include frosted glass windows and a rooftop deck where waterfront viewing is stylish and serene.
The pathway connecting both blocks is also filled with ample vegetation and the frame of the house with its rusted steel extensions provides the right support for creepers and climbing plants that complete cool and magical evenings under the stars. Large pools and waterways utilize the innate slope of the plot to water all the plants while the colorful and snazzy interiors are a touch different from the sleek and polished ones we often stumble upon.
The property also boats a sleek contemporary bathroom with sliding glass panels wooden drawers and shelving and a contrasting countertop and backsplash in gray. When it comes to the deck who can resist an expansive view of sea boats and waterfront properties? A helpful deck decor strategy: don’t clutter the space with an abundance of chairs especially if you want the deck space to mimic the serenity of the open water.
The next featured dwelling is a hidden poolhouse in Lebanon described as “a submission to nature’s greatness.” In fact while building the entire property at times the designers let nature take over. We love how the structure below neatly fits into the side of the grassy lawn. Note the rock formations surrounding the poolhouse–these natural treasures greatly shaped the project!
