The Saw Tooth House is a stunning example of current modern design trends. Designed by the Seattle based architecture team of E. Cobb Architects, this home is a modern design lover’s dream. Situated between two streets and in a traditional neighborhood, this modern marvel stands out as the jewel of this Seattle area. The exterior architecture of the home is long and tall with simple linear lines that create a rhythm to the home. The neutral exterior facade is accented by terracotta red on the upper level sidings. This pop of color draws your eyes up to the large second floor balcony. The Saw Tooth House gets its name from the five wedge shaped skylights, which bring in ample amounts of natural light into the home’s interior.
Monochromatic Scheme with Pops of Terracotta
The interior design of the Saw Tooth House is an extension of the exterior architecture. The designers created a connection to the exterior by applying the terracotta red as an accent against the monochromatic color scheme. The home’s color palette is anchored by a dark gray polished concrete floor, which are contrasted with lighter gray tones in the walls and furniture upholstery. The main floor of the home has an open floor plan perfect for entertaining guests. The interior of the home is full of beautiful natural light creating an inviting space that draws you into the kitchen. A chef would feel right at home in this modern kitchen with chic chocolate brown cabinets and stainless steel counters. Upstairs of this contemporary home boasts 2 guest bedrooms and a master suite to die for.
I believe is the architects and designers greatest success with the Saw Tooth House is the attention to the volume of space and how that relates to the day lighting of the home. When you are in this exquisite masterpiece you feel you are one with the home and nature.
