LOPEZ ISLAND, WA
The owners admire the aesthetics and the site planning approach of traditional Japanese residential architecture. They liked the idea that the home would convey a sense of several buildings, with the various roof shapes rising to the main ridge at the rear. There is a formal entrance to house facing south, with an additional adjacent entrance to the family outdoor living space.
The second floor deck over the owner’s artist studio was designed to be able to carry a container garden, away from the curious deer in the neighborhood.
“We never tire of driving up to our beautiful house in the woods of Lopez Island. It is a reflection of both of our lives and values, and of the beauty of our surroundings. The contractor who helped us build the house marveled at the care and detail in Paul’s plans.” – Richard and Meg Singer
