Port Ludlow House modern-kitchen
 

Port Ludlow House

The Port Ludlow Residence is a compact, 2400 SF modern house located on a wooded waterfront property at the north end of the Hood Canal, a long, fjord-like arm of western Puget Sound. The house creates a simple glazed living space that opens up to become a front porch to the beautiful Hood Canal.

The east-facing house is sited along a high bank, with a wonderful view of the water. The main living volume is completely glazed, with 12-ft. high glass walls facing the view and large, 8-ft.x8-ft. sliding glass doors that open to a slightly raised wood deck, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor space. During the warm summer months, the living area feels like a large, open porch. Anchoring the north end of the living space is a two-story building volume containing several bedrooms and separate his/her office spaces.

The interior finishes are simple and elegant, with IPE wood flooring, zebrawood cabinet doors with mahogany end panels, quartz and limestone countertops, and Douglas Fir trim and doors. Exterior materials are completely maintenance-free: metal siding and aluminum windows and doors. The metal siding has an alternating pattern using two different siding profiles.

The house has a number of sustainable or “green” building features, including 2x8 construction (40% greater insulation value); generous glass areas to provide natural lighting and ventilation; large overhangs for sun and rain protection; metal siding (recycled steel) for maximum durability, and a heat pump mechanical system for maximum energy efficiency. Sustainable interior finish materials include wood cabinets, linoleum floors, low-VOC paints, and natural wool carpet.

Hi,
Thanks for your question about the kitchen at our Port Ludlow project . Unfortunately, the kitchen detail photos had some lighting problems so we were not able to use them.

Hi,
Thanks for your question about our Port Ludlow house.
The windows all have recessed shades which can be lowered for privacy and/or sun control.

Hi,
Thanks for your question regarding the BIG 8-ft by 8-ft sliding glass doors at our Port Ludlow project. Unfortunately, the manufacturer of these doors went bankrupt. It is a long, sad story. I would also remark that in some areas of the country (such as Seattle), aluminum sliding doors and windows no longer meet energy conservation requirements

Distance from window to back of Rais - Hi, I am building a home with a very similar setup - a Rais in front of a large window. I am wondering how much space you left between the back of the stove and the window? My code in Canada states 16" but my contractor left 22" - feeling like this is way too much. Thanks!

Hi,
Thanks for your question about the RAIS wood stove in our Port Ludlow project.
The distance from the back of the stove to the glass is close to the 16" that you mention.

I am very sorry but the glass dining table was purchased directly by my clients, so I do not have any information on the table.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Finne warmed the interiors with wood, complementing the vast views out to the trees and water. The cabinets are zebrawood with sapele end panels that break up the stripes and add contrast. The elegant quartz and limestone countertops add to the organic feel. Two serving shelves attached with curved steel brackets are made of satin-edged glass — a material used throughout the house, including on interior doors and panels. The pendant lights are blown glass from Seattle company Resolute.
