Patkau Architects ::  San Juan Island  ::  Date Finished: 1998

This home was built for a couple relocating from Manhattan to San Juan Island. In addition to conventional domestic requirements, the program of the house included an office in which the couple intend to continue their professional work. The design also included a garden enclosed within a 12 foot tall fence to protect it from the numerous deer which run wild throughout the island.  The house is stretched across the ridge of the meadow, almost as a spatial dam, to divide the site into an enclosed forecourt to the southeast; a spatial reservoir which is released through the house to the panorama view of the Puget Sound below.
