Flexible floor plan keeps the options in spec house

The Seattle Times: August 13, 2000

“The House: Most architect-designed homes are built for a specific client who has well-defined needs. This “spec” house, in a popular west Kirkland neighborhood, was not. As a result, its architect faced a challenge: How to design a one-of-a-kind custom house, tailored to sire, that would meet the needs of an unknown buyer.”

“The result is a two-story home, that orients rooms around a central core so they flow easily, capturing light and views of lake Washington. Strong design elements – fir cabinets and trim, custom black-steel fixtures, opaque glass, and many built-ins – tie everything together.”
