Northwest Regional style

A regional variant of the International style of architecture that was popular in the Pacific Northwest between 1935 and 1960. The Northwest Regional style makes extensive use of wood frame construction and unpainted wood finishes on both the interior and exterior of a building. An emphasis is on integrating the building with its setting through asymmetrical floor plans, glass extending to the floor, a low-pitched or flat shingled roof with overhanging eaves, and a minimum of decoration.
