Leschi Residence

This steep slope site provides outstanding views to Lake Washington and the Cascade Range, but also presented challenges in the design of this three-level home. A private driveway serving several homes provided the only access and entry to the home. The L-shaped plan creates a private auto and entry courtyard. The open layout of the main floor living spaces capitalize on the views and flow out onto the large entertaining terrace perched 30' above the street.
