This residence is located on a northwesterly oriented beach fronting the Strait of Georgia.  The site includes many second-growth douglas firs, a beech grove and a grassy meadow with good solar exposure.  For over a thousand years this site was a summer camp location for the Lummi Indians, and due to its archeological significance no footing excavation could take place on the site.  Further, its location in a federally designated flood plain required that the structure be raised off the ground several feet.  The design brief called for a very low-impact, easy to maintain summer home that provides necessary programmatic functions with minimum distractions from the land and the view.
