Key Peninsula Residence

This Key Peninsula residence sits on a 7 ½ acre medium-bank waterfront site. An existing small cabin had occupied the site for years and held many fond memories for the homeowners. David Vandervort Architects worked carefully with the owners to create a new 3,200 sf house which carries on the small scale, informal, cottage legacy of that original structure. Four gabled pavilions connected and defined by circulation corridors and exterior space compose the building form as if it had been constructed over a span of years. Each pavilion serves a different function – living, master, guests, garage – and all have views of the water and Mount Rainier.

The material palette is composed of honest materials – stone, wood, steel and concrete. Siding/paneling milled from windfall site trees clad the interior and exterior of the home and the rustic quality of this wood furthers the beach cottage feeling of the home. Joe’s Bay Construction installed doors and beams of reclaimed woods adding their inherent character.

The home is LEED registered with hopes of attaining Gold certification. Other green features include FSC certified framing materials, a ground source heat pump system, photovoltaic electricity generation, solar water heating, raingarden stormwater management and a high level of environmentally preferred materials.
