Windermere II remodel

Laurelhurst Kitchen, Dining & Patio Update

An outdated and distinctly utilitarian kitchen/pantry wing did not do the home justice. The space needed a complete makeover, inside and out. This mid-century modern residence is inspired by Japanese architecture, most literally expressed in fine shoji screens, terrazzo floors and the composition of view windows, which capture a breath-taking view of Lake Washington and Mount Rainier. The new materials—rift white oak custom cabinets, soapstone counters, bamboo flooring and textured tile—are selected and detailed to enhance the Japanese feel of the home.
