Garden House by Balance Associates Architects
Garden House was designed by Balance Associates Architects. The property is located in Seattle, Washington, USA.
“Garden House is one of two houses set side by side in a park like setting within a suburban neighborhood. The houses are arranged to take advantage of an extensive garden and a salmon stream that runs through the property. Curved roofs and similar exterior materials help establish a relationship between the two houses. The building and landscape design are intended to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Both houses are built from a unique concrete building block manufactured from wood chip fibers which allows the building envelope to remain vapor permeable. Healthy home materials and practices are used throughout both homes.”
