San Juan Island Residence

A vacation home for an extended family and friends on a spectacular no bank beach with stunning sunset views of Vancouver Island and the Canadian Gulf Islands. The large program was broken down into a series of guest cabins, support structures, and a compact main residence with detached master suite/cabin. The various structures are organized by a curving rammed earth wall that flows through the building; allowing each to play off the wall in unique ways. The wall further serves as the primary site circulation spine while separating public from private spaces.
