Ketchikan, Alaska // Prentiss Architects

Situated in a extremely wet & rainy region of Alaska, this house was designed to resist all inclement weather while remaining easy to maintain. Situated so as to capture copious natural light and dramatic views, additional light & warmth is concentrated on the porch and entry with glazed canopies that allow light through on even the darkest days. A dynamic pattern enlivens the fiber cement siding and fiberglass windows; durable does not have to mean dull.
