Proudly nestled in a wooded property in Washington State, USA, Port Ludlow Residence is a contemporary residential project implemented by the creative team at FINNE Architects. The impressive 2400 square feet glass home sits along a high bank, with great views of the water. Here is more from the architects regarding the structure of the project: “The main living volume is completely glazed, with 12-ft. high glass walls facing the view and large, 8-ft.x8-ft. sliding glass doors that open to a slightly raised wood deck,  creating a seamless indoor-outdoor space. During the warm summer months, the living area feels like a large, open porch. Anchoring the north end of the living space is a two-story building volume containing several bedrooms and separate his/her office spaces“. Acting as the social core of the residence, the double-height living room abounds in natural light and showcases a minimalist, yet welcoming design. Sustainable features of the project include large overhangs for sun and rain protection, recycled steel siding for maximum durability and a heat pump mechanical system for maximum energy efficiency.
