Port Townsend, Washington - Under Construction

On the North Eastern extremity of the Olympic Peninsula on Puget Sound, Oshatz’ latest house is currently under construction. Port Townsend, a seaside town with a population of just under 10,000 people has a strong maritime heritage and is intrinsically connected to the sound. The views from the site, which sits on a hill above the town span over the sound, with it’s emerald islands and rolling mist, and extend southwards towards the spectacular Olympic mountains. To the South-East Mount Rainier appears as a shimmering white silhouette above the horizon

The house comprises 3 bedrooms, a large external deck from which to engage with the magnificent Peuget Sound, a number of internal living spaces, and a long internal lap pool. The main living space is located on the upper floor under a sweeping curved timber lined roof which is connected to the ground via sparsely located columns which give the effect of a floating, swooping form.

The house is constructed from a combination of concrete, steel and timber framing and includes uniquely textured concrete off-form walls and endless glass. The house is expected to be completed by mid-December 2018.
