This unique hexagonal shaped mid-century modern home was built in the early sixties by architect Roland Russell. It features many of the hallmarks of mid-century design: the interior interplay with nature, clean lines, and organic details. Yet the contemporary upgrades blend seamlessly with the original structure.
Designed by John Detlie, this mid-century captures the essence of the modernist movement. Indoor/outdoor living with window walls to blend nature w/contemporary comfort extending the indoor space indefinitely. Located in Bellevue’s Hilltop Community, this architecturally significant enclave of 39 homes was founded with a strong sense of community & stewardship for the environment. Trails, play field, swimming pool & tennis courts. ASLA award winning gardens & unobstructed Mt. Rainier views!
http://www.houzz.com/houzztv While searching for land on a local real estate site in Grand Rapids, Michigan, a husband and wife kept coming across photos of a grim-looking house in a wooded area of the city. They tried avoiding it, but their real estate agent eventually persuaded them to go see it. As for ideas, the homeowners say they studied Houzz every night on their iPad while lying in bed to come up with layout choices, furnishings, color schemes and even the design of a staircase. They then picked out all the materials, light fixtures and furnishings online http://www.houzz.com/houzztv

He calls his approach “multicultural modernism.” The result is a house that takes advantage of the climate and that uses natural systems and technology to boost the home’s efficiency.
