Hey there, did you know about this? This is a picture of a project I am working on, and I wanted to share it…
You can have your flooring be made of something other than wood! This stuff is great, it can be applied over a sub floor of plywood ( that is installed well) They will make you some color samples until it’s just right, and then they trowel it all over your floors and steps. This is not a poured slab, although it looks like it! It is an epoxy/mortar material called Westcoat.
This bathroom was a treat to work on. The homeowners were very motivated to re-use the vanity cabinet boxes, the mirror, the tub deck and marble tile on the floor. The challenge was trying to make it modern while leaving these materials in place. We chose new cab doors, a new countertop ( corian btw), new faucets, new shower wall and floor tile, new shower fixtures, new shower doors and new paint of course.
The shower tile was carefully chosen to blend with the Crema Marfil Marble tile that the room had a ton of ( you can see it on the shower bench).
The exterior colors were partially picked out when I arrived on this job, I just gave a quick ten minutes and re-picked the dark body color. Wish I knew they were going to paint them garage doors white, yikes. In my dream world those doors are made of wood. I think I will put wood garage doors on this house officially in my memory banks. There, I feel better.
There aren’t many modern green homes in Bellevue. My friend and collaborator Yuval Sofer is developing a fabulous little community of homes that are truly modern and warm. Whitney Architecture designed the structures and Yuval and I worked on the exterior finishes of the homes. Each residence in the community has distinctly different color palettes, yet similarities shape. The usage of wood, metal and color are what set these homes apart.
The interiors are primarily Yuval’s vision in collaboration with the home owners, I just offered a few opinions here and there. There are custom furniture pieces, excellent feature walls, beautiful sitting areas, amazing lighting and luxurious baths. All of that is delivered in a stylish, modern warm northwest style. I am honored to be a part of it.
Give Yuval a call if you are looking to build a distinctly stylish custom modern home in the Seattle Bellevue area.
