Selah Residence is a project designed by Stuart Silk Architects. This four-bedroom residence, situated high on a plateau in the arid landscape of eastern Washington, offers sweeping views across the agricultural valley to the Cascade Mountains and provides a dramatic backdrop to the apple orchards below. Our clients wanted a home that, while distinctly modern, drew inspiration from the century-old, stone-clad gabled farmhouses in the area. Photography by Steve Keating.
Thunderbird Heights Residence is a project designed by Stuart Silk Architects and is located in Rancho Mirage, California. Originally built in the 1960s, the challenge for this project was how to update a mid-century modern house without sacrificing its charm. Situated on a 1.3-acre site perched on a plateau above Coachella Valley, the rugged, inhospitable Santa Rosa Mountains rise immediately from the back yard; bighorn sheep can often be seen wandering on the rocks above. The 6,357-square-foot house sits roughly in the middle of the property; entry is off the driveway and through a private courtyard. Photography by David Papazian
Drawn to this historic Italianate residence, a landmark in Capitol Hill’s Harvard-Belmont Historical District, the new owners knew they needed a design firm that would respect the home’s historic exterior yet bring a modern sensibility to the interiors, which had long ago been compromised through a series of ill-conceived remodels.

Rainier and the Cascade Mountains. The site borders a heavily landscaped street end, which provides a privacy buffer from the adjoining property to the south. The neighborhood includes both traditional homes from the first half of the last century and several recently built modern homes. Photography by Aaron Leitz
