Rex Hohlbein, Architect
The Hinoki House, 2007
Winner of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Seattle Merit Award, this truly special home offers the rare opportunity to own a residential piece of art in the heart of Clyde Hill. Designed by acclaimed Seattle architect, Rex Hohlbein, with interiors by Doug Rasar, exquisite landscape that optimizes privacy and the lake, city and mountain views, this in-town sanctuary is a seamless mix of form and function; blurring the lines between indoors and out, common and private spaces. 5 years in the planning and construction, this meticulously crafted home spares no attention to detail from its extensive built-in, mahogany cabinetry to the expansive disappearing window-walls. This contemporary masterpiece is as timeless as the ledge stone, fine woods, blackened steel, concrete and glass from which it is built. With easy style and grace, the spaces are as perfect for entertaining as for everyday living. Just blocks from downtown Bellevue, Lake Washington beaches, and minutes from all that the Seattle area has to offer.
