Glass walled waterfront residence by Finne Architects

10 Sep

As I said in one of my earlier posts, Architecture was one of my first loves of design, and I have to say this house designed by Finne Architects has to be my dream home. It has a full glass wall which fills the home with light. I hope you like the look of it as much as I do.

“The 2,400-square-foot Port Ludlow Residence is located on a waterfront lot in Hood Canal, which is one of the main basins of the Puget Sound in Washington State. The modern, eco-friendly home, designed by Finne Architects, is full of glass walls that open up onto the surrounding wood deck giving the indoor/outdoor feel.”

“The main living area is completely covered in 12-foot high glass walls giving the home the best views of the water and the wooded property it sits on.”

“They incorporated many eco-friendly elements into the property including the glass panels that provide natural light and ventilation, 2×8 frame construction that increased the insulation value by 40%, a heat pump mechanical system, and various interior finishes that were sustainable.”

 

 

The north end of the structure houses the bedrooms and offices in a two-story volume.
