A narrow, sloped lot with a corner entrance provides the starting point for the design of this 4800 SF home in the city of Medina, near Seattle. The house is arranged through the use of two volumes. The main volume is located towards the northern end of the site to maximize the size of the yard, and it contains the garage on the public end, and an open Kitchen, Dining, and Living spaces on the lower level. These spaces face a large private backyard space that receives southern and western sunlight all year round. The top-level contains the bedrooms.
