West Mercer Residence Sundberg Kennedy Ly-Au Young Architects

Designed by Sundberg Kennedy Ly-Au Young Architects (SKL Architects), West Mercer Residence is a 5,500 sf single-family home located in Mercer Island, Washington.

Situated tightly in its hillside location, this 5,500 square foot home along the shores of Lake Washington can be imagined as two bars of space, one public and one private, which are connected by a central double height volume.

Gathering and social spaces maximize lakefront views with large floor-to-ceiling windows while modestly-sized bedrooms are place to recharge and retreat.

The project was created in close collaboration with the clients, our consultants, and local craftspeople. Highlights include a pivoting wenge, bronze and leather front door and a custom steel chandelier that can be raised and lowered.
