Main Cabin

Architecture by Bosworth Hoedemaker
Interior Design by Garret Cord Werner

This San Juan Islands retreat is based on the idea of camp. It provides places to come together as a family and ways of retreating into small personal spaces. A main house has four public spaces arranged along a central axis – the kitchen, dining room, living room, and den. Behind these more generous spaces are a fireplace inglenook, mud room, laundry, office, and bath. Other buildings in the compound include a master cabin, writer’s hut, guest cabin, barn, and picnic shelter. With the exception of the barn, the buildings are located along a contour of the sloped site and connected between and through the buildings by a continuous path.

where does one get a wall sconce that is hanging over the doorways. I love the boxed/cube look, clean and modern.

They were custom for the house. They are made with simple lamp-holders covered by a painted plywood box painted white.

Alison Aves added this to Houzz Tour: San Juan Islands Retreat
Dormer windows above the dining table (there is no loft, Hoedemaker says) invite in plenty of light.
