Raft Island Residence

Area: 2,150 sf
Construction: 2020
Typology: Single Family Residence

This modest home is designed to occupy the footprint of an existing cabin nestled among native conifers on a steep hillside along the shore of the southern Puget Sound. The clients wish to live in close proximity to the sea, where they could tend to oyster beds and be able to enjoy their shared passion for saltwater scuba diving on site. Working with a modest budget and significant site constraints led to a humble and compact form, while creating selective areas of floor to ceiling glass allowed for visual connections to the sea from nearly every room in the home.
