The home has been envisioned by Marie Ljubojevic and Lauren from  NK Architects and materialized by Sloan Ritchie of Cascade Built. Featuring an eye-catching geometric facade, the rectangular volume nestles 2,710 square feet in which it cleverly hides its eco-friendliness behind contemporary luxury.

The home occupies a compact urban infill lot of 2000 square feet in which it shelters a magnificent collection of spaces in which the average indoor air temperature of  70 degrees is maintained by “opening and closing its Intus high performance windows and doors in summer and using the heat recovery ventilator when it’s colder.” Photographer Aaron Leitz managed to highlight details that are shaping this modern home in Seattle in the picture bellow in an extraordinary manner. The Seattle`s first Certified Passive Home nestles four bedroom, three bathrooms and an open stairwell flooded by light through punctuate skylights that resemble a spine. The sustainable home encourages vertical living making a better use of the small footprint. The vertical living is enhanced magnificently because the interiors wearing white stark are flooded by light, a heaven for the four inhabitants.

Architects are further implying that other medias have also enhanced this dream home:  ” a salvaged site tree was used for stair treads, wall paneling, and a live-edge bathroom counter top. Other sustainable features include heat pump hot water, zero VOC finishes, a heat recovery ventilator, high performance windows, 16-inches of insulation in the walls and 20+ inches in the lid, and wiring for solar. Luxurious aspects include a Liebherr refrigerator, induction cook top, custom cabinetry, Teregren bamboo strand flooring, and a roof deck with panoramic views of the lake and nearby mountains.” Basically “Park Passive demonstrates that luxury and sustainability can co-exist.”
