Island Life: Laura Bohn Designs a House in Seattle

Laura Bohn worked in close collaboration with SKB Architects on the renovation of this serene house on Mercer Island in Lake Washington, part of metropolitan Seattle. It was the fourth major project in 20 years Laura has done for the client, a bank executive, his wife, and family. The client and designer’s tastes have evolved in unison through that period–getting more and more modern, but always retaining a soft, warm touch. Incorporating furniture from the previous projects, the large house with its airy, sun-filled interiors is a perfect reflection of Laura’s sense of light, color, and space. Large expanses of glazing take advantage of spectacular views over the sloping lawn out to the lake, bringing the beauty of the natural setting indoors.
