Washington is known for having a few pretty architecturally significant residences but it’s not every day that the home of Jack Christiansen hits the market. Christiansen was known for engineering the Kingdome as well as his work in thin-shell concrete buildings. The home has sold and it’s easy to see why.

Right off the bat, it’s surprising that this home hasn’t sold. It’s a legacy property on Lake Washington, has immaculate MCM design, and is unlike anything new you’ll find on the market these days. At $2.225 million, it is expensive but well worth the price for someone who has the cash.
