This charming coastal home was designed by architectural studio Hoedemaker Pfeiffer, nestled on the shores of Bainbridge Island, Washington. The owners of this seaside escape live in Seattle and having this idyllic vacation home is perfect for de-stressing and gathering with the couple’s two daughters.

Originally constructed in the late 1800s by three brothers, this shelter was used for generations before being burned down by a tragic fire. The owner is the daughter of one of the brothers who sought to rebuild on the same site. Spread out over two levels, there is a total of 5,812 square feet of living space — reimagined to evoke the charm of its predecessor with a modern and elegant twist, lasting for another century.

History was used to influence the design of this structure, which is devised into three pavilions that are linked together via spaces with a lower height, bringing in natural light while maximizing views. The goal was to accommodate a large, growing family while making the structure feel like a smaller cottage.
