This conceptual house study for a seasoned adventure sports photographer, melds in with its wooded site.  Situated in the trees with view corridors out to Bellingham Bay, it’s all about the spot here, and with the client’s affinity for modern cabins with pointy roofs, we set out to find a creative simple solution.

A plan diagram of 2 equal rectangles, shifted off each other, sets up the main level living space on one side, with an upper level suite, and a single walk out bedroom on the lower level. Each bedroom here having its own adventure connecting with the landscape. The second rectangle sets up the garage, gear storage ( there is a lot), and the upper level studio home office.

The roof form follows suit. Two similar forms cloak over the boxes below, unifying them together in a common language. An extended reach on the one roof form creates a pointy carport for the adventure van.
