The Serene Contemporary Main Street House in USA

The Main Street House is located in Seattle, Washington, USA, designed by SHED Architecture & Design. The name of the house is taken from the unimproved right of way and pedestrian path that bounds its site to the north. It is a single family house owned by a geologist couple who are nearing retirement and are actively working from home.

The house is situated on a sloping site with partial views of Lake Washington, Leschi Park, and the surrounding terrain. Meanwhile, the interior is luminous looking serene with its clean design. The house is sustainable aside from being beautiful. Its principal sustainable features are “advanced framing, high-efficiency boiler with rooftop solar-thermal preheat, heat recovery ventilation system, rain water detention tank, passive solar and ventilation, and 4-star Builtgreen certified”. Well, what would you expect from a couple who are inclined to science and the environment? Take a look at the images of the house below.
