This modern waterfront retreat was designed by Prentiss Balance Wickline Architects sits lightly over the shores of Alaska. Called “Tongass Ledge”, this dwelling provides sweeping views of the inlet waters and balanced at the edge of a rock wall, two volumes at a subtle angle capture the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

For a busy homeowner who splits time between Seattle and Ketchikan, the complete design required a simple form and program, personalized through highly custom interiors. Standing at the edge of the vibrant Tongass Narrows, the Ledge is the perfect lookout for a nature lover.
