Architecture Design of Gig Harbor Residence

Description About The Project

Gig Harbor Residence designed by Scott Edwards Architecture is a stunning one-story home which harmonious with the nature surrounding. Indeed, the juxtaposition between the tall firs and the linearity of the home ground it within the larger forest context and speak to what SEA’s clients love most about the site. The result is a cozy and inviting home that encourages enjoyment of both the custom interior and the picturesque exterior.

On the other hand, the architect learned quickly how important the outdoors are to the Gig Harbor Residence’s family. Hence, during the early stages of design, they listened, learned, and collaborated with this family of three to get to know them and their unique vision for their home. They let both the site and prominent aspects of their life, like their active lifestyle and desire to entertain, drive the project’s direction.

Once insides, the house designed delicately. The living area such as living room, dining room, kitchen are spacious with the outdoor connection. The main living space has large amounts of glass allowing for views of the exterior courtyard space and the forest beyond from every room. Indeed, this house offers high end amenities for the owner to enjoy the daily living and stunning nature surrounding.

The low linear roof has deep overhangs to shield from the summer sun and protect from the Northwest rains. Passive design elements, like large windows on the south, fewer windows on the north, and cross ventilation, promote sustainability.

Text by the Architects: The Gig Harbor Residence exemplifies Northwest Regionalism. The home sits at a forest opening and is contiguous with the tall fir trees that surround it. It is a one-story home designed to allow the residents to age in place, and features low linear roofs and clean lines.
