Whidbey Island Modern Architecture

We've been working on a concept for a client on Whidbey Island. The client wanted a modern shed-style home with clean, simple lines. After a trip to Wendy's and a few napkin sketches later, I came up with this.

At the office, Scott and Tim took a look at the concept and began working out some of the details of the design. The client is an avid gardener, and as such, we wanted to provide her with plenty of garden space without blocking the view of Puget Sound. To account for this, we designed a switchback pathway that curves down the hill in front of the residence.

An idea of how the landscaping might work.

Conceptual sketches for supporting the roof.

And finally, here is the concept modeled in SketchUp.
