Miller Hull Modern Contemporary House Design in Mercer Island
This architectural artwork designed by Miller Hull Partnership knows no bounds. Set in a ravine on Seattle’s Mercer Island, this is where nature meets architecture; where outside comes in; where cozy comforts have a cool, modern edge. This contemporary and award-winning single-family residence boasts a facade of steel and concrete. This industrial flavor is offset by warm woods and large expanses of glass, and the home’s lush, hillside setting.
A bridge-like deck measuring nine by 10 ft. leads residents and guests to a wood-and-glass “vertical lift” door, which opens to the main living area and transforms the deck into an outdoor room. Inside, four bedrooms, three baths and three spacious storeys are finished with woods, from floor to ceiling. Where you won’t find wood, you’ll find yourself peering through the glass walls and into surrounding nature. This beautiful modern house is for sale for $1,150,000.
Built in 1998 , this Contemporary House Design in Mercer Island by Miller Hull is compact, low maintenance, open house, defies the boundaries of inside and out. Nestled in a ravine on Mercer Island, the three-story residence balances the edginess of steel and concrete with the warmth of wood, floating in the green hillside.
