a continuing Spatial Experience: The Cedar Park House in Seattle

Peter Cohan completed the design of Cedar Park House, a beautiful two-story residence, in Seattle, Washington. Breezy and bright, the relaxing home features an open space lounge. The home was built to satisfy the wishes of the clients, who wanted a stress-free living environment, strongly connected to the outside. The home opens as much as the courtyard, where the owners can enjoy blissfully the natural surroundings.

“The Cedar Park responds on to the predicament posed by the positioning – that its most appropriate location also is its most fragile. The building is shaped by the interaction of site-cast concrete walls and water-collecting roofs. While the transparency of the home creates a unbroken spatial experience, connecting in and out.” Concrete meets wood, making a wonderful modern and (rustic) organic home. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow the natural light to flood the inner and create that perfect serene home ambience. The inner feels uncluttered and relaxed, offering to the owners freedom of movement and peace of mind. The lounge boasts a lovely fireplace and favours a surprising view over the bay.
