Port Townsend Residence was designed by the architects from Bohlin Cywinski Jackson and is located in Washington. The house has amazing views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca as well as of the Olympic Mountains. Here is some information from the developers about the project: “Varied materials, from refined to rustic, reduce the scale of the 3200 square foot building and articulate each volume. A line of exposed steel structure and a series of wood columns extend the length of the slender building, supporting  laminated wood beams and rafters. The primary spaces of the home are to the west  of the columns, oriented to take advantage of the expansive views. The high roof over the living room slopes upward to take advantage of natural  daylight. A fireplace made of concrete block anchors this room and serves both interior and exterior living spaces. A lower volume clad in reclaimed barnwood houses the kitchen and sunroom, and frames views of a garden“. What do you think the advantages of living in this uncommon retreat are?
