Black Residence


Remodel Residence

Allan Residence

Black Residence, Lopez Island

This shingle residence with an encompassing roof recalls the form of the grand old barns of early Lopez Island. Sited on an exposed peninsula in Fish Bay, the house has exceptional views. Living activities are focused on the second level in the main hall, which takes advantage of the southwest view to San Juan Channel from the sun space, and the northeast view toward Fish Bay from the deck. The house hovers 3 feet above ground on concrete piers to minimize disturbance to the grasslands, and safely out of the reach of the occasional winter flood tides.
