Sunset Point Residence

Orcas Island | Washington 

Perched on a San Juan Island shoreline, this 2,365 sq ft home looks northwest over Sunset Bay.  The home was designed with two mirroring curved glass walls that frame views, and let maximum light into the home.  

The architecture is composed of two pavilions arranged to embrace the site and the natural forces acting upon it.  

Designed for a couple seeking comfort and security, the exterior materials allude to island appropriate but substantial design, with CMU block, naturally stained cedar siding, hot rolled steel and metal roof being the predominant elements.  

These materials are brought inside as structure and accent, with the great room fireplace set in CMU and steel columns evident throughout.   Upstairs, a glass bridge adjacent to the loft connects to a Guest Suite and Exercise area.  

This space also has a curved glass wall mirroring the great room feature and looking out over Victoria and the Olympics.
