The high volumes of this great room are expressed with scissor trusses stretching from the main level, pas the balcony to the vaulted ceiling with corbels that have a modern twist. Blackened steel accents the timber work with pipe fittings supporting chandeliers at the intersection of the scissor truss chords. Custom finishes highlight the Douglas fir timbers and contrast with the light tongue and groove ceiling.
Holmes-King-Kallquist continues to challenge and inspire us—we are always grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with such professionals. For this home, integrated steel and timber trusses frame a comfortable and inviting space along the lake. Projects like these are why we love to work with talented architectural firms.
