Pomeroy Residence Tour
Docomomo WEWA invites you to view the Pomeroy residence on Mercer Island. The property is a stellar example of a remarkably intact mid-century modern house. We thank the Pomeroy family for opening up the home.
The house was completed in 1962 and designed by architect Gerald Pomeroy as the family home for himself, his wife Peggy, and their children. Sited on a steep hillside with views to the southwest, the house is defined by its repeating arched roofline and the use of cantilevering to create the illusion of the structure floating in its surroundings. This is a rare opportunity to learn how an architect from the mid-century used his own residence to experiment with innovative construction techniques and use of materials. The interior retains the original floor plan, materials, features, finishes, and furnishings.
Members of the Pomeroy family will be present to discuss the history and design of the property.
