Lake Samish Retreat

The architectural challenge for this project was to transform a 600 square foot bachelor home into a 2,600 square foot family home without losing its simplicity. To achieve this, the design juxtaposes the modern sensibilities of clean lines and open spaces with the exposed wood theme of the original cabin. The home is composed of three areas – the master suite renovation from the existing structure, the children’s spaces, and the family spaces – allowing the new construction to nestle into the existing landscape without overtaking it.
