Gallery: Seattle’s Stunning Mount Baker Residence


As of late, Seattle has developed into a burgeoning center of sustainable design with plenty of exceptional green architecture and design popping up. The stunning Mount Baker home is one more example to add to the growing green list. Designed by PB Elemental Architecture, the Mount Baker Residence is a sexy green abode that showcases some cutting-edge sustainable design technologies.

The 3,600 sf Mt Baker property is composed of four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and an extra one-bedroom apartment complete with its own patio. A large living room and a two-car garage seal the deal. PB Elemental Architecture designed the home with some great sustainable features such as radiant heat concrete floors, low-VOC paints and sealants, CFL Lighting and dual flush toilets. In terms of architecture, the house is designed to emphasize the expansive presence of each space with different types of interior wall/floor finishes in each room.

A beautiful example of modern architecture, the Mount Baker Residence strikes a stunning profile while setting a strong standard for sustainable design.

    Its a beautiful house. I always struggle with this style house sitting in what looks like a 25 year old neighborhood. It just looks to out of place. It would look better in a really old part of the city where some urban revitalization is happening. I do love it though.

    Nice looking house… Perhaps I’m stupid when it comes to real estate in Seattle, but the houses look like your could jump from your roof to the next (ie: close, small lots), and the price tag listed on the builder’s site of $1,149,000 seems excessive ($319/sq ft). It does make my 10 year old traditional 2800 sq ft colonial blah-looking house on 3.5 acres of wooded land in Podunk WI look much nicer! Especially with a price tag of less than a quarter what the house above goes for. Thanks for the reality check and for making me feel better!

    It’d look far more appropriate as an urban rowhouse, but it’s a nice enough house. At least it avoids the artificial, high-fashion architectural wanking that so commonly passes for the green design aesthetic.

    i live near this building, its a great design but none of the pictures show the scale of this house alongside its neighbors. if you look at the photos carfully you can see that it towers uncomfortably over the small houses next door.
