MCM Lakehouse | Schemata Workshop

Description by Schemata Workshop:

An elegantly simple, mid-century modern house is rescued from entropy and given a full upgrade to meet current energy and seismic building codes. This home on Lake Sammamish was reduced to framing and rebuilt to create improved indoor and outdoor areas for a family of four. Elements of the original construction were preserved, including the double height windows, entry door, metalwork that comprised a bell-shaped fireplace and guardrail. Improvements include ground level terrazzo flooring and new walnut casework throughout to enhance the original design. There have been many unanticipated challenges during construction that brought the team together in a successful collaboration between the Owner, Contractor and Architect.
