LW Design Portfolio

English Contemporary


The key element in designing this award winning "English Contemporary" estate was to develop a design with an exquisite and meticulously detailed interior and a timeless exterior. The interior boasts of cross-beamed ceilings, copper inlays and bowed radius gallery ceilings with intricate detailed columns. Additional finishes are limestone flooring, custom walnut cabinetry and custom interior doors and window grids.

A sustainable low maintenance exterior was developed using slate roofing, natural limestone façade and limestone finished stucco system combined with copper roofing with copper drains, iron railing at decks and natural stone and colored concrete walkways and patio surfaces.

The overall estate received a Platinum award (the highest designation), from Northwest Energy Star Homes for a sustainable, energy efficient design. Site orientation, hydronic floors, geothermal mechanical system, ICF exterior walls, lighting control system and LCD landscape lighting were some of the features incorporated into the energy efficient design.


"We have had the pleasure of working with LW Design over the past two years. From the first meeting we found Larry Ward to be an excellent listener with a genuine interest in seeing our home come to life. He has the confidence that comes with experience. He sees the “big picture” but also attends to the infinite amount of details in a home. He patiently worked with us throughout the entire design process. He generously shares his ideas and offers unique solutions. We respect Larry’s personal integrity, honesty, and sense of humor"
