Picnic ShelterTraditional Patio, Seattle

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.

The picnic shelter is made of heavy timber and stone, but is otherwise open, sans walls.

If summer got away from you, autumn provides you with a final opportunity to dine alfresco. Spark a warm fire or set the atmosphere with the intimacy of candlelight.

This rustic structure needs little more than a picnic table to make for a cozy gathering. Tip: Candles are an entertaining necessity both indoors and outside. Not only does everyone look better in the flickering light, they also add a sense of intimacy to any gathering.

A picnic shelter wards off the notorious Northwest coolness with an inviting fireplace. "The wood for the picnic shelter was made from trees felled on the site and dried during the course of construction of the main house," Hoedemaker says. "The table and bench were made from the same wood."

Jason Ball at The Decorators Unlimited added this to Northwest Style: Staying Cozy OutsideApr 7, 2011

Build for the entire family. A rustic picnic table, large stone fireplace and hearth make this all about gatherings. I can just imagine summer evenings with the adults hanging out around the table and children roasting marshmallows in the fire.

This home has its own glamorous version of the state park picnic pavilion.
