Conard Romano Architects

This island home is set on a dramatic site overlooking the Straits of Juan de Fuca. The owners wanted a substantial addition to a 150-square foot, one-room cabin. The new one-story home is carefully connected to the waterfront views, nestled low into the rocky site, and surrounded by large fir and pine trees. The home’s new main room was built adjacent to an ancient wind shaped pine, which becomes the focal point of the connection between indoors and outdoors. This main room features fir ceilings and a twenty-foot long bay window that enhances the engagement of the inside space to the view. A cupola above the center of the roof brings light deep into the interior of the house.

Oh wow, I wish I could get the trim color as well. It looks a little like BM Buxton Blue, but a little more green.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

What's romantic about this cupola design for me is its rugged nature. The functional cupola lets natural light in to the home's interior. The home embraces the wildness around it.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to When to Paint Your Home Gray
A warmer-hued gray helps a larger, rambling home, like this one, nestle into its surroundings. It can make the home appear less massive in scale and gentler on the landscape.
