the story

This newly constructed home was built with a Northwest respect for rugged materials such as stone, concrete, and Douglas Fir. After this client purchased it they wanted to re-design a few areas to make the house their own. A library was created out of a nook at the front foyer, and a new office for two was built next to it. Custom furniture, new lighting, and accessories were joined with the existing to complete a new living room arrangement.

Next to the climbing wall gym in the lower floor of this home, the request was to create a Man Cave that has a modern style but still feels like it belongs to the rest of the house.  A media room, game room, kitchen with wine cellar, and bathroom were created with natural but streamlined details and palette. Some details have a curious history, the pattern on the bronze light fixtures for instance, was created with a shotgun by a custom metal workshop in Illinois. No two are alike!

A year later, a second phase of changes were designed for the upper floor master suite and a backyard outdoor pavilion. You can see phase II of the Home In the Woods residence gallery here.
