This custom home was designed in 1964 for builder O. L. Jacobson.  It was designed by local Seattle architect George W. Lucker who passed away in 2013. George W. Lucker produced several contemporary home designs in Seward Park, Magnolia, Mercer Island, including many apartment buildings in the metro area.  Mr. Lucker’s collective regional contribution to the Northwest Modernism Architectural Movement in Western Washington (WEWA) is cited in the Documentation and Conservation of the Modern Western Movement a non-profit architectural preservation group in Seattle, WA

Thanks Joan Cox  - It is an incredible home and the fact that he had the original architect from 1964 come back in 2002 and design the garage addition to tie into the home seamlessly blows me away...
