One of the best things about smart renovation of an old home is that you not only get to have a brand new home that suits your latest needs and meets to your current taste but it also allows you to keep the spirit of the original home intact and the memories (if any) attached with it alive. And that is precisely what FINNE Architects have tried to accomplish with this gorgeous home set among secluded woods about 25 miles north of Seattle.
There is also an atrium and a funnel exit for warm air that keeps the structure cool even on the hot summer days and if you feel a necessity to cool down even further then the inviting pool in that backyard should help you with a relaxing splash. With effervescent interiors and energy conserving initiatives this makes for a great home for all those who like to go green with style!

On the other side of it are a relaxing porch and an infinity pool for a cool dip on one of those hot and humid African days. Interiors were kept simple stylish and are mostly clad in monochromatic colors while green seems to have been added in some of the places just to give the décor a feel of freshness and keep it in sync with a ‘nature-centric’ theme.
