Lake Sammamish Remodel
This home started out as a humble lake cottage, built in the 1950’s on the east side of Lake Sammamish. It was then added to in the 90’s and has been remodeled few times thereafter.
The big gestures of 2020 remodel is an addition of a new prominent entry and breakfast nook, as well as a vertical extension of the dining room with mostly glazed walls. The garage façade was articulated with a slight projection of the upper story bedroom, and an L-shaped awning over the garage doors, as well as a new composition of windows.
Major improvement to the interior’s flow included, the removal of centrally located posts in the living room and kitchen, reconfiguration of the living room focal wall and enhanced flow into the kitchen. The addition of a mudroom helped mitigate the transition from the garage to the main living space as well as create additional storage. The kitchen was significantly improved with a raised ceiling, new functional cabinetry, an extension of the daylit breakfast nook, and a beautiful waterfall slab kitchen island!
Upstairs, Western part of the house reconfigured to include an expanded rec room – or “Hawk’s Nest”. Outfitted with a state-of-the-art audio and video equipment, plush leather recliners and a generous kitchenette.
The interior finishes and elements are inspired by Scandinavian design aesthetic. New white oak engineered floors complement gloss white and matte light oak cabinetry, with a concrete-look quartz and tile hard surfaces. Light fixtures, white and seemingly understated, bring a subtle dynamic element to the spaces generously illuminated by natural light.
