Inspired by a treasured stone and wood home lost to fire decades earlier
in the hills of Appalachia, this stunning stone dwelling and guest
house are set on a gorgeous landscape in the San Juan Islands,
Washington. Designed by Hoedemaker Pfeiffer,
the new house pays homage to its natural setting, and features simple
stone volumes that seem to expand upwards from the rocky terrain. A
stone wall and plinth form the rear of the houses, while a wood pavilion
rests atop of a low stone base. The use of natural stone and solid wood
continues throughout the interior of both houses. Beyond the expansive
glazing is an exterior deck that provides a beautiful outdoor living
space, taking full advantage of the sweeping views of Puget Sound.
