Modern hillside home showcases a relaxed vibe on Bainbridge Island

This modern hillside home designed by Coates Design Seattle Architects is 2,600 square feet with two bedrooms, located on Bainbridge Island, Washington. Similar to its sibling shoreline home, Seaview Escape, it is done in the Pacific Northwest-style, with wood floors and expansive two-story glazing allowing a view of the mountains from the upper balcony. Cantilevered wood “floating” stair treads lead to a library overlooking the double-height living and dining space below. Continue below to see the rest of this spectacular home…

Beach glass and nautical light fixtures were chosen for the bathrooms to bring a coastal feel indoors. A stone mass wall with corten panels provides the focal point of the living space, housing a fireplace and media center while providing separation from the master suite. The house is connected to a wooden pathway that leads to the beach.

The hillside waterfront property has been in the clients’ family since the 1950s and contains two parcels that used to have a mid-century home and a 1920s cabin. The two siblings that had acquired these wanted the two homes redeveloped in conjunction with one another.

They hoped they would be able to use the houses, which are just 50 feet apart, for big family gatherings to ensure their families stayed close. The existing site topography was maintained to minimize earth disturbance on the steep slope and the new homes were built on the existing footprint.

Each home includes a material palette of stone, concrete, wood, and metal, complimenting one another while defining the subtle differences in the siblings’ personal tastes. Both utilize a stone mass wall to delineate the private spaces from the shared central public spaces. The site is accessed by a communal drive shared between the two homes, providing a unique overlook of the cantilevered green roof.

What We Love: This fabulous modern hillside home offers a relaxed vibe both indoors and out. Walls of glass at the rear of the property frame ocean views while drenching the interiors with natural light. A large deck provides a comfortable place for the homeowners to unwind while enjoying the tranquility of this home’s surroundings.
