Marrowstone Island

A house nestled among the trees on Puget Sounds' Marrowstone Island capturing views of Mystery Bay. This owner-built project is broken into separate buildings (Main House, Guest House, and Garage) to minimize the impact of the footprint among the trees, including the existing home of a bald eagle. Corten steel-clad boxes form the utility core of the main house. Simple shed roof volumes with exposed fir beams and ceilings define the major living spaces. Stone chimney walls provide anchoring points and create a sense of place. Large multi-panel lift & slide doors dissolve indoor/outdoor boundaries.
