Ocean Retreat
Westport, Washington

The clients requested something between a lighthouse and a lean-to on the beach that would feel comfortable for two, yet accommodate groups up to twelve. Located a quarter mile from the ocean, the surrounding context is sparsely populated with typical suburban ramblers and manufactured homes. Inspiration for this house and landscape came from the surrounding coastal architecture and beaches - the metal pole buildings that line the marina and the beach grass that carpets the nearby sand dunes.
