  • About | NW Lifestyle Homes

    about us NW Lifestyle Homes creates custom homes for everyday joy and livability. We are an integrated practice of architectural design and masterful building. Our one-of-a-kind homes are thoughtfully developed in our design studio with the client’s specific wishes, and they embody the unique way in which each client lives. "From the moment we first saw our home from NW Lifestyle Homes, we knew it was markedly different. We appreciate quality design, and this house had it. We love the flexible spaces, the design continuity throughout, as well as the unique exterior styling that is becoming a trademark of NW Lifestyle Homes." ​ steve + mindy shivers we value livability “Livability” is the suitability of a place for positive human experience. At NW Lifestyle Homes, we build our houses to maximize “livability.” A “livable” home is functional, adaptable, comfortable, and fun. Many new homes are beautiful to look at, but not all are truly livable. The livability of a NW Lifestyle Home is often not fully appreciated until you - well - live in it. A livable NW Lifestyle Home, with its combination of private and public spaces and flexible rooms that can be used for many purposes, adapts with you through all of life’s changes. The most important endpoint in designing a livable home is to make it comfortable and fun. Comfort follows from functionality and adaptability, but it is enhanced by details that please your senses. Abundant natural light and air, aesthetically pleasing architectural features, textures and colors, generous and well-scaled spaces, and outdoor living areas which maximize sun exposure all work together to make you want to come home to your NW Lifestyle Home. See Our Work meet the team Founder + Visionary michael burke Michael Burke is the dreamer and visionary for NW Lifestyle Homes. Mike has been designing and building homes to maximize livability for more than 60 years. His innovative ideas provide the creative direction for the company. The greatest compliment you can give Mike is, "Your homes make a difference in our lives." When not working, Mike spends all of his free time on the job site. Founder + Designer Emeritus lindy burke When Lindy Burke began building homes in 1985, she started a family legacy.

General Contractor mason mawer Mason Mawer is our builder, overseeing the entire construction process with a perfectionist's eye. Mason has an old-school, hands-on, get it done, tenacious work ethic that he learned growing up with twin brother Matt and their builder parents. With that foundation, Mason has been building homes and delighting homeowners for the last 20 years. Off the jobsite, Mason can be found floating in Neah Bay chasing Chinook and telling stories about the one that got away. Lead Designer matt mawer As interpreter of Michael's vision, Matthew Mawer embraces the idea for each project, adds his own unique style, and crafts original home designs for NWLH. Together, Matt and Michael test boundaries and create a new normal for residential design and livability in the northwest. In addition to being fluent in Michael-ese, Matt has 20 years of architectural design experience, a B.Arch. from Washington State University and a horribly misguided belief of one day joining the professional golf tour. Design C oordinator meg zook Meg Zook comes to NWLH with a great eye and a plethora of experiences in the design world. Having studied at San Diego State University and the London Inchbald School of Design, Meg has the ability to hone in on color, texture, and form. Meg's years in the fashion industry have contributed to her focus on the customer and the desire to build an excellent selection and documentation process. Meg's mantra in every situation is, "There must be a better way." When not at work, Meg is in her kitchen testing recipes for the perfect old-fashioned chocolate cake!
