Transformation of the Week by:
On the shores of Puget Sound, architect David Hall has designed a summer residence inspired by an ancient model: a Native American long house. This home shares the traditional floor plan of common spaces in the center, flanked by private spaces along the eaves. Three sides of the house face the sea and its attendant harsh elements. Roof overhangs, sunshades and patios provide shelter, while stainless-steel tie rods provide wind resistance. A Kynar finish protects exterior metal details; natural, camouflaging colors help the house recede into its forest backdrop.
