The Lake Forest Park Residence by Finne Architects

Finne Architects have completed a renovation to a 1950s Northwest Contemporary house on a secluded, wooded site about 25 miles north of Seattle, Washington.
 Custom fabrications included the cast-glass kitchen counter, steel wall panels, suspended steel mirror frames, laser-cut steel shade valences, custom steel lighting bars, hand-blown glass light fixtures.

The intense craftsmanship and detailing of the renovation speaks also to a very important sustainable principle: build it well and it will last for many, many years!
Sustainable design is not simply creating a laundry-list of green materials, it is  rather creating enduring building form and construction with appropriate long life-cycle, low-energy consuming materials.
