This brilliantly designed beach front residence situated in Gonzales Bay was featured in International Architectural Digest in 2009, lauded for its futuristic design and exemplary construction.
The owner builder sought to anchor the home to the site, and radiate the architectural form to bring in the entire panoramic vista of the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the majestic Olympic Mountains. He managed to allow the setting to take “Center Stage. The west coast modern design combines classic modern elements of steel, glass, cedar, concrete and fir, setting it apart as a truly Signature home.
