Spee-Bi-Dah, WA, Project in Design
Project Team: Robert Hutchison, Sean Morgan, Scott Claassen
Structural Engineer: Jim Harriott, Harriott Valentine Engineers
This 2-story 800 sf cottage is specifically designed for a pre-existing concrete foundation that previously supported an early 1900s single story beach cabin. By cantilevering beyond the existing foundation and by extending upwards, the new cottage gains valuable floor area for a husband and wife who are downsizing from a much larger home. Working with our clients, we developed a formal vocabulary that can best be defined as 'contemporary vernacular'.
