Cougar Mountain House

This house was designed as a one-of-a-kind spec house, and was the first 4-star, Built-Green Single-Family House permitted in King County. The form of the design was inspired by the sweeping views of the Olympic Mountains, Mount Baker and the Cascade Range. A massive, sloping wall emerges as a metaphor of the tectonic forces seen from the hilltop. With large amounts of annual rainfall in this location, the sloped roofs collect and filter water rainwater for toilets, a fire sprinkler system and seasonal irrigation.
