Sustainable home with modern design aesthetic

Perched high upon Yeomalt Bluff, the Ellis Residence enjoys a commanding 180 degree view of Puget Sound and the Seattle skyline. The owners requested that the residence be sustainable, and the resulting design by Coates Design Architects is the first LEED Platinum home outside the city of Seattle. The owners had a special goal in mind when they decided to build a sustainable home in the beautiful surroundings of Bainbridge Island, Washington. The owners’ goal was two-fold: they wanted to prove that sustainability can be achieved without compromising a modern aesthetic design and they wanted to motivate others to follow suit.
