mwworks : Whidbey Island Farm Retreat

Фермерський будинок для відпочинку на острові Уїдбі у штаті Вашингтон
 location: Whidbey Island, WA

Architect and Interior Design : mwworks  /   Landscape Design : Kenneth Philp Landscape Architects

mwworks :
Out of respect for turn-of-the-century farm buildings on the site, this house carefully
 tucks into nearby forest. Perched on a low hill, the house looks over existing buildings,
 bucolic cattle fields, a cat-tail edged pond, and the forest itself. The house forms around
 a courtyard of natural grasses and ferns, with rooms themselves woven between mature
 cedar and fir. A low wall of stacked natural stone organizes the building and
 hints at the perimeter of the courtyard. 

mwworks :
The house was designed as both vacation house and part-time residence for every
 generation of a large local family. Intended for summer BBQs, fishing retreats, and
 grand holiday gatherings, the house was designed to be flexible and durable. With a
 palette of naturally weathered woods, concrete, stone walls, and black steel accents,
 the house strives to be warm and rustic, simple and open - a house that
 honors both the forest and agricultural heritage of the site.
