Their shared love of entertaining, cooking, collecting and displaying art, and healthy living was balanced against their individual passions of writing, music, and gardening - resulting in large double-height gathering areas flanked by quieter, more secluded private spaces. Several guest bedrooms join the master suite, gym, office, and music practice room to round out the quiet wing. On lively evenings when a fundraising event or dinner party is in full swing, large sliding doors allow the home to be opened up onto the backyard - taking advantage of the territorial views and the Coast Range beyond, as well as the couple's beautiful garden - while the entry side of the home is sheltered from the street through layers of landscaping, site walls, and screening elements. Visitors to the home are drawn through these layers one by one in quiet procession until reaching the expansive indoor-outdoor living areas and entertaining spaces. Deep eaves, light ledges, and vertical wood screens bolster a sense of privacy and seclusion, and create sheltered areas from the weather and sun. The home's restrained palette of classic materials - cedar, steel, and glass - and their expressions are connected deeply to the Pacific Northwest and the region's particular spin on West Coast modernism.
