The glass-steel-concrete masterpiece on Mercer Island

mi1 architecture

Concrete, steel and glass are considered “cold” materials that lack the coziness and warmth of other materials, used in residential buildings. That might be true, but the structures they create are no way inferior when it comes to style and beauty. Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects prove that used in a proper way those three materials can make an outstanding house, like this one, located on Washington’s Mercer Island, Seattle. The house consists of two concrete structures, connected via an exposed steel bridge leading into the main house and to a private courtyard. A stunning floor-to-ceiling concrete fireplace takes place in the living room, which – like the rest of the interior – is double-height. The large windows, or more properly the glass walls, provide clear view to the surrounding areas and to the rest of the house. Though it looks a bit severe and industrial, this family refuge is incredibly beautiful, don’t you think?
