Bellevue Modern Farmhouse Bellevue, WA Residential
In addition to new home constructions, we work with many clients to renovate and revitalize existing structures to match their needs and desires. Located in Bellevue, Washington, we worked on this pre-existing modern farmhouse to make renovations to the basement, main level, as well as design their second story addition. Given the home’s location above Lake Washington, we wanted to make sure the sweeping views were preserved. The utilization of a cable rail system ensured that the beautiful view remained unobstructed from any angle.
Inside the home, the design is eclectic, incorporating inspiration from a farmhouse structure with a modern twist. The living room was redesigned with a new fireplace and built-in bench seating to offset the domineering aspect of the sloped ceiling. We worked with our clients to design a new, open floor plan that would improve the flow and function of the home. Considering the home’s extensive deck, yard and view beyond, the owners wanted to create a space that could flow between the outdoors and indoors seamlessly.
A 16’ folding glass wall was designed to bring the outside in, while ensuring it could be enjoyed during all seasons. With a connection from the deck to the dining room and kitchen beyond, the design is perfect for guests to socialize and mingle, flowing from one area to another. One of the stand out details in the home is the kitchen, representing a center piece to the home as a whole. Mosaics were designed both in the kitchen as well as the bathrooms throughout in order to establish a point of visual interest while serving as complimenting details. The relatively neutral gray color palette used throughout is broken up through the different patterns and details incorporated throughout the home. Wide-open windows ensure each room is filled with natural light, and that the view is accessible from anywhere in the house.
