“Located in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood, the Azaya Residence is a two-level, three-bedroom with a home office and studio. Featuring low-maintenance materials and self-cleaning paint, the single-family home has rooftop decks and a green roof, with views to the east of Lake Washington and Mercer Island. There is also a protected rear garden for kids to play. The structure minimizes energy use with a passive solar design, ample day lighting, sun shading, natural cross ventilation, and multiple energy efficient systems. The owners purchased a corner lot with an existing house. Elemental tore down the dilapidated house and reused the foundation to significantly reduce landfill waste, new material, and onsite labor costs.”
