La Conner, WA
This modern Puget Sound house sits on a parcel of land in La Conner where the previous home was destroyed by fire. Despite great challenges, including an extreme steep slope and complicated waterfront environmental impact issues, we found design opportunities to build something that truly embodies our approach to timeless green design. In all of our work, and particularly in our modern houses, we take great care to avoid passing trends and instead focus on multi-generational design that will be as elegant and relevant in 50 years as it is today. In this modern house, Green roofs, CMU walls, reclaimed building materials and Locally sourced materials were combined, developing a complex patina of sophistication and richness to soften the home’s modern edge and create a great sense of environmental awareness.
