Ore studios He is responsible for designing this magnificent Washington beach shelter for several empty nests in the city of Seattle. Located fifty meters from the central coast, this weekend retreat offers enviable views of Skagit Bay and Whidbey Island. The architects used the agricultural language of the surrounding valley to create a classic triangular shape that protrudes towards the water.
As a cross-generational retreat, the main building houses common rooms and a kitchen hidden at the side. An attached two-story block has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and plenty of storage space. The 2,500-square-foot structure, with bedrooms on both floors, was designed to age in place.

Ore Studios created the overall design, while Mt. Theisen Architects from Vernon coordinated the construction documentation and engineering. In addition to the architectural design, they selected materials, furnishings and furniture for the house, following the house owner's request for a comfortable and simple palette.
Strong cream-colored walls, joinery and tiles are balanced out by darkened architectural elements such as window sashes, stone stoves and individual ties in the large room. The decor is comfortable yet unexpected, vintage, exclusive and European pieces arrive together comfortably.
