I was checking out Hybrid Architecture’s website this morning, which I often do, and saw this perfect little modern house tucked away on what looks like a pretty steep lot to me, over looking some gorgeous Seattle scenery. Hybrid Architecture, led by design principal Robert Humble, is a design-build firm out of Seattle that does projects small (like shipping container small!) to larger multi-family projects and all of it designed with what seems like an overall aim towards a balanced inter-connectivity…what they call “livability”.
Here is Hybrid’s Livability Manifesto from their website:
“We believe many factors impact the livability of architecture – from economical, social, environmental, & cultural. Our Hybrid ‘Livability’ Manifesto is a series of concepts we apply to Hybrid Designs, Construction, & Development. It constantly improves as our understanding of modern living evolves through Research, Competition Work, & Professional Experience gained from the front lines of Building the Livable City.”
Pretty freaking cool. And they achieve this while still creating awesome looking, creative modern homes.
