At one with the land using a variety of materials

One goal of both the homeowner and architect was to "create a minimalist response to the oversized builder homes that crowd the shores of Lake Sammamish."
Architect: Freeman Fong of Freeman Fong Architecture

Builder: Thornberg Construction

Construction cost/size: $298,100/1,300 square feet

The intent: The owner, an avid gardener, loved the two acres surrounding his 1980s rambler on a hill above Lake Sammamish. However, the home on it — a dark, poorly designed rambler — left a lot to be desired. So Fong, working with designer Joel Snyder, remodeled it to better connect with the out-of-doors. They also added a 547-square-foot loft and finished the whole project off with a wide variety of materials. Among them are maple cabinets, white-oak flooring, aluminum stair railings and a galvanized metal roof.
