Before & After: A Bainbridge Island home gets a stunning renovation

northwest-style-home-exterior

This classic 1960s Northwest-style home underwent an extensive renovation by Miller Hull Partnership, nestled on a beautifully landscaped bluff overlooking Puget Sound, on Bainbridge Island, Washington. Encompassing 3,200-square-feet of living space, the original residence consisted of a north and south home that was completely reimagined.

The remodel includes an enhancement of the building envelope, self-sufficient systems, and updated interiors while maintaining the original architectural character of the home. A new, 725-square-foot detached carport and storage area was added to the property to house the owner’s electrical vehicles and bicycles. Custom furnishings of natural materials were crafted by local artisans to create a comfortable interior. Continue below for the floor plans and before the renovation images!

Thoughtful landscape improvements complement the existing landscape which consists of ornamental plantings of Japanese maples, flowering trees, rhododendrons, and azaleas.

A new elevated walkway curates a path through the mature, 200-foot tall evergreens over an installation of natural stone in a dry stream bed arrangement. A variety of edible berries, as well as vegetables and a mycological foraging forest, provide urban agriculture for the property.

Achieving Living Building Challenge 4.0 Certification through net positive energy and water, food production, and a strict materials Red List, this home is considered one of the most sustainable residences in the world. The certification was achieved through the Seattle-based International Living Future Institute. This certification was achieved in early 2021, “making it one of only four residences in the world, and the first renovated home, to do so,” states the architects.

To meet these goals, a photovoltaic system on the south home provides energy for the entire property, while battery storage ensures resilience. Rainwater cisterns and a grey water treatment system ensure resources are conserved and well-managed.
