As CEO and partner at Point 32, developer Chris Rogers knows of architecturally-significant modern Seattle buildings, such as the Bullitt Center, Art Stable and the renovated Belroy Apartments. He's also been calling the architecturally-significant Hammer House home for a few years now. Built by starchitect Tom Kundig, the spacious 2-BR/2.5-bath is now on the market for $1.22M. A monument to concrete, glass and steel, the building encourages natural ventilation and passive solar shading as a modern marvel. Not for the shy, the myriad windows & openings maintain a constant connection between the interior and exterior. And for the eco-conscious, the roof collects rainwater stored in a cistern for non-potable uses within the house and garden.
