This Elliott Bay abode adds to the many waterfront homes in that region, with unique architecture and an interior design inspired by natural elements.

The house has many functional aspects that make it environmentally friendly, while simultaneously stunning with its modern design. To start, the roof has a strategic linear design that allows rainwater to be collected and directed through a downspout waterfall and into the backyard garden pool. In addition, the entire home is insulated at a rate that is 40% higher than it must be by regulation, meaning that it reduces electricity and money spent to heat the home.

In regard to its interior, there are many components that look like rippling water -- from its rose gold cabinets in the kitchen to the metal rods that make up its beautiful staircase. This nature-incorporating design is certainly a piece to draw inspiration from for other waterfront homes.
