Standing on top of Washington Lake, the sustainable house offers a series of dynamic spaces and eco-friendly buildings. Built using natural materials, the house located in Renton, Washington, USA was sketched out by Stettler Design and was completed in 2011.
On the exterior of the house supports the view of Washington Lake by applying a facade made entirely of glass. Meanwhile, to support privacy is provided an enclosure with limited openings made of concrete and corrugated metal siding.
On the inside of the house has three levels, where the lower level of the building features a separate entrance and ample area for bike storage. While the upper two levels are family room, kitchen, bedrooms, work area and loft. The area offers lake views through large sliding glass doors.
On the roof there are photovoltaic and hot water heating panels to improve overall building energy efficiency. On the roof also has a butterfly roof that is useful for collecting rain water and channeling it to a water bath located on the north side of the building.
