Bainbridge Island Custom Home basement

Bainbridge Island Custom Home

This home was designed for a Bainbridge Island developer. Sited on a densely wooded lane, the zoning of this lot forced us to design a compact home that rises 3 stories. In response to this compactness, we drew inspiration from the grand homes of McKim, Mead & White on the Long Island Sound and Newport, Rhode Island. Utilizing our favorite Great Room Scheme once again, we planned the main level with a 2-storey entry hall, office, formal dining room, covered porch, Kitchen/Breakfast area and finally, the Great Room itself. The lower level contains a guest room with bath, family room and garage. Upstairs, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, laundry area and Master Suite with large sleeping area, sitting area his & her walk-in closets and 5 piece master bath are all efficiently arranged to maximize room size.

Formally, the roof is designed to accommodate the upper level program and to reduce the building’s bulk. The roof springs from the top of the main level to make the home appear as if it is 2 stories with a walk-up attic. The roof profile is a classic gambrel shape with its upper slope positioned at a shallow angle and steeper lower slope. We added an additional flair to the roof at the main level to accentuate the formalism .
