A Lakeside Summer Retreat in Seattle by CCS Architecture

Built for a Bay Area couple who longed for a summer retreat away from the fog of San Francisco, the Madrona Residence was designed by CCS Architecture. Located on a steep and narrow lot that overlooks Lake Washington, the Seattle residence is 4,000-square-feet that’s spread out over three floors.

The main living area is on the upper level to take advantage of the views. There’s a large kitchen, dining, and living rooms.

Beyond the communal spaces, there’s a bridge that crosses over the double-height entryway and acts as an art gallery. Skylights above fill the space with light. The bridge leads to two home offices.
