San Juan Island Residence – San Juan Island, WA « DAVID VANDERVORT ARCHITECTS

San Juan Island Residence – San Juan Island, WA January 19, 2009 Situated on a half acre lot within a developed community on San Juan Island, this 1750 sf contemporary dwelling gazes out over Puget Sound toward passing Orca whales and the distant Olympic Mountains. Oriented to maximize natural ventilation and daylighting this residence is comprised of 2 primary pods – a fountain-courtyard is defined within the space between the main house and a small library. The dramatic form of the gently vaulted roofscape was inspired by the elegant form of surfacing Orcas.The idea of a “modern cabin” informs the loft-like interior space. It is warmed by natural woods and accented by the delicate insertion of steel elements such as sliding track doors and a spiral stair. The unique kitchen locates all solely functional aspects (dish cleaning, storage, etc.) within an enclosed pantry area with cooking and prep aspects integrated with the activity of the main space.
