| EAGLE POINT

San Juan Island, USA // Prentiss Architects (2011)

Walking down the pebble pathway underneath an old, stunted spruce, the Eagle Point house first appears looking like it grew out of the ground itself. It fits into the sea-swept landscape as well as the boiling rock outcroppings and flowing grasses around it. The house's weathered cedar siding and locally-sourced living roof amplify the effect.

The wood-lined interior provides a contemplative space with sweeping views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca as the owner's impressive orchid collection fills the house with aroma. Each detail of Eagle Point has been thoughtfully curated and the home becomes more and more rooted into the landscape as the plants, both inside and out, grow.
