The Leschi Residence is a 3300 sq. ft. home that is located in Seattle, Washington, USA, overlooking Lake Washington with views of the Cascade Mountain Range. The retreat was design by Adams Mohler Ghillino Architects.
Here is the official project description: “The garage anchors the house to the northwest corner of the site while the semi-detached guest quarters is perched above, cantilevering out to create a covered walk to the entry. The main block occupies the opposing corner of the site. Its southeast corner has been entirely removed and replaced with a thirty-foot tall tube steel bracket that supports the sheltering roof above. A steel and wood framed deck is literally suspended from the bracket by a 1” diameter steel rod. The main and upper levels open to the resulting two-story space with 14 foot wide lift & glide glass doors allowing the house to spatially expand and contract in response to the seasons”.
