Final Piece of Point Monroe Family Compound Complete
Four years ago, we began the design process of the main house to align with the owner’s retirement and move back to the Seattle area from Chicago in 2015. See the boathouse and carriage house, designed in 2006, here. The boathouse drew attention and was featured in the Seattle Times. You can read the article here.
Although the Boathouse and Carriage House are more Pacific Northwest shingle in character, this time around the owners wanted a modern interpretation for the main house. Now in 2016 – 10 years later – they are settled in, and their little “compound” has become the family gathering place for their three grown sons, their wives, and the owner’s grandchildren.
The main house is a contemporary interpretation of Northwest Regionalism in which dramatic waterfront conditions are complemented with aesthetic consideration of massing, materials and the embracing of natural light. Read the Seattle Times article about the main house here.
The interior spaces are highlighted in marble, steel, walnut, Sapele and limestone finishes.
