Hood Canal Residence
The walls of a house create the interior spaces, of course, but they also give definition to the exterior areas as well. Here, particular attention is given to creating a series of outdoor spaces with different characteristics & views - to be traversed before one even enters the home.
Located in a rural setting, the clients' love of nature inspired this residence to be designed as three separate buildings - for ease of phasing the construction, and to make the gardens as an integral part of the day-to-day rituals.
A continuous ribbon of weathered steel ties the structures of charred wood finish together, while framing views that direct guests through the site.
