Pacific Northwest beach house inspired by summer camp

A modern beach house in the Pacific Northwest was inspired by summer camp.

The house is featured in a recent architectural review by Rebecca Teagarden in The Seattle Times. Teagarden writes:

“SUMMER CAMP. That’s what Kristin Hall wanted: a place on the water that felt like summer camp. With lots of wood and outdoor pathways to little rooms that felt like cabins. And a place for the canoe. But all of that in one house, under one canopy, attached by a single deck and suspended over the beach of Marrowstone Island.”

Building the house was a 10-year process and made a reality by architectural firm Anderson Anderson and interior designer Michelle Burgess.
