Seattle has always been a city with multiple points of interest, surrounded by water, mountains, rainforest, and lovely parks. Bordered on the west by Puget Sound spilling into the Pacific and on the east by Lake Washington with its shipping channel into Puget Sound, residents of Seattle and those living on Lake Washington always have direct access to the ocean.

These natural land-water formations make Seattle the eighth largest seaport in the U.S. and a major gateway of trade with Asia. The city has become a model for sustainable development and a major hub for the green industry.

Lake Washington was formed by glaciers and the melting ice was contained, turning it into a freshwater, river-fed lake rich with many species of fish. On the northeast side of the lake is the town of Kirkland with its unique downtown waterfront with restaurants, art galleries, a 400-seat performing arts center, public parks, beaches, and a collection of public art primarily in the form of bronze sculptures.

Located in a hilltop residential area in Kirkland overlooking Lake Washington and the mountains is a home newly designed by Elemental Architecture’s Chris Pardo and built by Unique Greenhomes. Intentionally designed to grasp every ray of light and views, the home is surrounded on the south side by glass walls and interior walls that multiply the light making the modern interior cheerful in all kinds of weather.

Large decks extend outward from the 3,626-square-foot house for even more entertaining space. With ultimate energy efficiency built-in, the five-bedroom, three-bath house uses fixtures, material, and appliances from European manufacturers, LED lighting, speakers, installed wi-fi connection, iPads with Smart Home system and security cameras.
