To build their home on Puget Sound, former Angelenos Amy Staupe and Christopher Roy commissioned Method Homes to construct a highly personalized prefab structure.
This classic mid-century modern home in Lakewood, Washington, had great "bones" that had been compromised by subsequent remodels. DeForest Architects opened up walls, updated finishes, and created a kitchen centered around what the residents call "the mother of all islands."
This house, designed by renowned Pacific Northwest architect Gene Zema on Bainbridge Island outside Seattle, received a smart renovation from SHED Architecture & Design.
On Puget Sound, activist and filmmaker Anna Hoover collaborated with Les Eerkes, a principal at Olson Kundig Architects, on a 693-square-foot studio in the woods. Using freecycled materials and a six-footed foundation to rein in construction costs, Hoover and Eerkes created a distinctive structure that treads lightly on the land.
In the remote San Juan Islands, an artist and an architect collaborated on a modern residence dedicated to creative pursuits. A panorama of sylvan hills and ocean views surrounds the environmentally minded abode.
Architects Tiffany Bowie and Joe Malboeuf’s Capitol Hill, Seattle, infill project fits three families in a 28-foot-wide lot. Its street-facing facade is clad in prefinished siding from Taylor Metals, and cedar shaped and cut with CNC technology.
Architect Chris Pardo designed the Element 1 model for prefab builder Method Homes, cladding it in Cor-Ten steel and cedar. The 800-square-foot home was the perfect fit for Karen Kiest’s plot of land on Marrowstone Island, Washington.
For their house on the sylvan shores of the Strait of Juan de Fuca in Washington state, architect Anthony Pellecchia and his wife, graphic designer Kathy Wesselman, used prefabricated frames raised aboveground to avoid disturbing the site.
