Olympia Residence

Yelm, WA

This modern home is a retreat within a rural 10-acre parcel. Utilizing a simple L-shaped floor plan, the 2,200 SF home’s central gathering space is connected to the exterior through two expansive walls of floor to ceiling glazing. Designed with radiant floor heating, heat-recovery technology, and natural ventilation, the simplicity of the floor plan’s organization creates an intimate and warm interior environment.  The minimal exterior material palette of wood and stucco siding, metal panel accents, CMU site walls, and a hovering flat roof plane ground the project into the prairie-style landscape.
