Fall Home Design: A happy medium in Washington Park

Stuart Silk Architects (principals Silk and Mike Troyer, and project manager Michael McFadden) teamed with builder Schultz Miller, Amy Baker Interior Design, landscape architect Land Morphology and a passel of craftspeople to create this contemporary-yet-traditional waterfront home for Craig and Lisa and their family. By merging white siding and traditional gabled roofs with painted steel windows and zinc roof shingles, Silk says, “We attempted to make one foot in traditional Cape Cod beachside classic, and the other foot in crisp, clean, tightly designed modern expression. We wanted it to be unique, and a reflection of both of them.” (Steve Ringman/The Seattle Times)

In a gleeful expression of collaboration, a lakefront home merges contemporary and traditional design.
