A family home on the water, the owners wanted a house that would encourage creating and viewing art; connecting with nature, friends and family. DeForest Architects designed a boomerang shaped plan that nestles into the hillside while framing views of Mt. Rainier and Lake Washington.

Connection to the outdoors
Multi-panel sliding doors provide large openings on the main level. These gather an abundance of daylight as well as blur the line between inside and out. Outdoor spaces are strongly connected to the living areas of the home and provide ample space for social gatherings.

Feeling of movement
A Family Room anchors one end of the home, while a multi-purpose Studio anchors the other. Circulating between these magnet spaces encourages interaction among family and friends, an important quality to the outgoing owners. The ‘boomerang skew’ in the floor plan is a dynamic response for direct views of Mt. Rainier from key spaces in the home. This translates into a feeling of movement in the forms and surfaces of the Boomerang House.
