Mercer Island home has room for two families and a future

Luthi, now an architect and once a contractor, kept the major pathway through the home as light as possible with floating stairs, glass railings, sky lights and a frosted-door entry. Otherwise, the home is lit entirely with LED bulbs, 120 of them. The climbing wall/elevator shaft works almost like a piece of art.
