False Bay Residence

San Juan Islands United States

Olson Kundig Architects

 

Project Description

This single-family home is situated to maximize sweeping views of Haro Strait and the Olympic Mountains. A fifteen foot tall, opaque entry door pivots open to an art gallery and a view of the Sound through a double-height glazed living and dining space. Light and solar heat gain can be adjusted with large exterior sliding wood shutters that extend across the entire west facade. Deep roof overhangs also provide shade and cover from direct sunlight and storms.
