Tucked into the woods, the design of this Bainbridge Island residence centers on thoughtful placement of its structures between the old Douglas fir, hemlock, and cedar trees. The design evolved into a cross plan to take advantage of both a sunny clearing and forest to the north. The master bedroom with study below project into the treed canopy creating a romantic woodland experience. The family room and great room extend into the brighter sunny meadow, and a terrace connects the meadow with the home.
Broad overhangs, exposed beams and large windows display a northwest modern style. Beams, window trim, and windows are carefully detailed to interlace with each other and produce a tailored and integrated aesthetic.
