Come tour the house that Northwest Modernism built.

Celebrate Docomomo North America National Tour Day by taking a Fall tour of the Gene Zema-designed Johnson-Anderson House!

Designed by Seattle architect, Gene Zema, this house was completed in 1962. Located in Bellevue, and set upon the east shore of Lake Washington, the house is a dramatic combination of landscape and architectural design. A series of living pavilions have exposed wood structures accented by skylights and expansive walls of windows. These spaces are connected by breezeways, which frame views both to the lake and to an open-air courtyard. With the surrounding landscape designed by Richard Haag, this house is a rare example of the successful merging of interior and exterior spaces, and the collaboration of two important local Modernists.
