Existing patio at front door - I love how you hid the mecanics of the glass and the wall connection with the design. We have an area 16 ft by 8ft deep one side and 12 ft deep other side. So a recessed patio with front door on 16 ft run. Could we attach something like this only lower profile because roof is low hips? Is this area in photo closed in at glass roof and sides? Really nicely designed. Thank you »
here I am, a Kirkland born, 20 yr Anacortes resident, living in Houston til my husband retires girl. I fell in love with the architecture in this photo not knowing the designer is located in the same stomping grounds in my native WA. Cheers to good Northwest design. »
My guess is that this breezeway creates a channel connecting the house to the garage. It's certainly an ingenious way to make sure all the tools find their way back to their homes after various interior projects. Because, really, who's going to pass up a chance to walk through a corridor as gorgeous as this one?
Another big influence on the site planning was the valley's strong southwestern winds. This breezeway not only connects the main house to the garage but also strategically protects the outdoor room.The breezeway has an 8-foot-long sliding door that opens up the view of endless fields on calm mornings, then closes to shelter the patio when the winds kick up in the afternoon. The glass roof's structure mimics the rhythm of the home's metal roof but keeps the view open to the sky.
