Dwell Development together with JT Architecture, and structural engineer Alex Moroses, have recently completed a modern house in Seattle, Washington. Sustainability is the heart of the project, with recycled and locally sourced materials used throughout.

Giving the house a touch of character, the exterior of the home is adorned with reclaimed barn wood in various hues, and metals sourced from Oregon.
