Platinum House, Seattle, WA

Located outside of Seattle, WA, this magnificent 2,500 sq ft two-story house has been recently completed by Coates Design Seattle Architects.

 

 

Perched high on a bluff, this magnificent home designed by Coates Design Seattle Architects enjoys unique views of the Puget Sound, Mount Rainier, and Mount Baker. It is also the first LEED Platinum-certified residence in Washington State outside of Seattle.

The site had an existing structure on it that was carefully taken apart and recycled, effectively diverting 98% of it from the landfill. Before construction began, subcontractors created detailed lists of framing and sheathing to more accurately place their lumber orders, therefore reducing waste. Interior trim and stair material were site-milled from fallen fir trees from on a neighbor’s property. After construction, the site was rehabilitated with native and drought-tolerant vegetation and pervious pavers. The crest of the bluff was restored with plantings to reestablish habitat and prevent erosion.
