1951 University Washington Architecture Project "Bomber House"
Nestled in a wooded forest neighborhood located across from the Jackson Park Golf course in north Seattle, this mid-century modern remodel showcases a unique property emulating Pacific Northwest indoor/outdoor living. The house was originally designed by UW architectural students and built by UW construction management program as a project house in 1951. This property was nicknamed the “Bomber House,” as it contains Boeing air force bombers plane turrets repurposed for the home's skylights. An open entertainment layout with modern amenities was constructed while preserving the original architectural lines, flat roof, post and beam structure.

1954 Ibsen Nelsen BaliModern House
Visions of an exotic getaway come alive in the lush and private landscaping in the middle of the city. The ceremonial Javanese Joglo structure with its rich carvings, creates a memorable outdoor room, and is complemented beautifully by the calm stillness and gentle ripple of the koi pond. This iconic home by Pacific Northwest pioneer of modern architecture - Ibsen Nelsen 1919-2001 (Museum of Flight) - is one of his residential projects in the Seattle area. Clean lines, post war modern aesthetic, and wabi-sabi style throughout transforms one when walking into the space. This remodel project has been nationally and locally published for its extensive Balinese modern landscape design and outdoor living. It is a true Urban-Asian Oasis.
