This modern guest house serves as a simple retreat overlooking Lake Washington on the western shore of Mercer Island, with an open living, kitchen and dining room on the main floor, and a bedroom with a large roof deck on the upper level. Sited as close to the lake as permitted by code, the structure is elevated above a patio to preserve the flat portion of the site for outdoor use.
