Eagle Ridge Residence by Gary Gladwish Architecture:

The client requested an open, simple, low maintenance design which works with the site in such a way that her views of the island, forest and ledges were always present within the house. The program consists of a combined kitchen-dining-living area, study, master suite, art studio and storage area.

 

The solution utilizes some of her favorite materials; old barn wood, rusty steel, moss and rocks. Large doors slide away to open the house to the expansive views, creating a living room in the woods. The entry garden bisects the house creating two zones while it carries the site and the eye out to the view. The 800 square feet art studio and storage area are left raw to facilitate converting them to additional bedrooms at a later date.
