Striking Port Townsend Residence surrounded by forest

Port Townsend Residence-Lawrence Architecture-01-1 Kindesign

Port Townsend Residence was designed by Lawrence Architecture for a retired couple in their mid 60s who were moving ashore after 30 years of living on a sailboat. The two bedroom home is situated on a heavily-wooded 10 acre site on the Olympic Peninsular near Port Townsend, Washington. Originally containing a grove of deciduous trees, the building site is a clearing within a forest of fir and cedars.

Program
A main cabin with living and cooking spaces and a settee for dining; sleeping quarters for the owners; separate office space; sleeping quarters for the owner’s friends and family, many of whom live outside the United States; an engine room; ample built-ins and lockers for storage including 200 linear feet of shelving; and (finally) a bathroom of their own that isn’t shared by everyone else in a marina. A separate building with 2-car garage, work shop, and an accessory dwelling unit.
