An Inviting Timber&Glass Home in Washington : Davis Residence
Situated on a dreamy cliff site, with unobstructed views over San Juan Islands, this beautiful home was designed by Miller Hull Partnership in Bellingham, Washington. The Davis Residence measures 1400 sq. ft, including the guest house and garage. According to the architects, “the concept marries a long gently sloping roof form containing the kitchen, entry and studio with a vertical tower containing the living room and master bedroom above.The roof forms express their timber construction with exposed joist, 1×4 skip sheathing and plywood diaphragms. The high performance wood fir windows provide thermal breaks while being strong enough for the mullions to be of minimal dimension. Wood T&G paneling is stained in bold transparent colors.” We have to say we were fascinated by the warm atmosphere that this home seems to generate, not to mention its incredible vistas.
