Vancouver, WA STATE

HALE RESIDENCE. This project is on Vancouver Lake in Washington. The Client wanted to maintain the site in its natural state and design around the mature trees and existing blackberry bushes. The house was located on the lake high water line with a natural meadow in front. The flood plain stretches across the site so every room has a view of the lake.

The exterior architectural form is parapet walled boxes clad with cement rain screen panels and pitched roof shapes with W.R.C. walls and large window and door systems provide transparency and views on the lake side and privacy from the approach side. Large pitched overhangs protect major windows and entries from the weather.

More than fifty sustainable processes and materials were utilized in this design. The design is visually stimulating, complex and exploitative. The house radiates with a warm inviting environment that is casual but sophisticated.
