This is an architectural style unique to our area, and one to which we are particularly drawn. It is an architecture “of our place”. Here in the Pacific Northwest we live in a landscape that is rich with large trees, waters all around, an abundance of views and ever-changing light. Homes that embrace this world blur the distinction between inside and out, and celebrate their simple structural elements (think big wood beams!). They feature expansive windows, palettes of natural materials (fir trim, natural tile & stone, glass), and soft neutral colours. Our local, beloved mid-century architect predecessors developed this hybridized version of mid-century modernism: Paul Kirk, Gene Zema, Wendell Lovett to name a few. We salute their considerable creative skills, and relish every opportunity to continue this Northwest tradition.
