Henry Island rustic-living-room

Henry Island

This project occupies a low ridge at the tip of a small island and is flanked by a beach to either side. The two beaches suggested the image of the two-faced god Janus who was the inspiration for the design. The house is flanked by two large porches, one facing either beach, which offer shelter from the elements while inviting the visitors outdoors. Three buildings are linked together to form a string of buildings that follow the terrain. Massive concrete columns lend strength and support while becoming part of the language of the forest in which the house is situated. Salvaged wood forms the majority of the interior structure and the floors. Light is introduced deep into the house through doors, windows, clerestories, and dormer windows. The house is organized along two long enfilades that order space and invite long views through the building and to the landscape beyond.

Can we ask where you purchased or who install your beams. Love Them

Thank you. They were repurposed from a wood warehouse. The work to size and finish the beams and to make the trusses was done by G.R. Plume.

Walls - Really beautiful home. We have a timber frame home with stained wood plank walls - are yours wood planks as well that have been painted? We would like to accent the wood beams, trim by brightening the ceiling to floor, wall to wall wood. Thank you.

The wood for the project was custom-stained on site.
