When architect Don Larkin and his small Eastside architectural firm were asked to design a Lopez Island vacation home on the original foundation of a dilapidated cabin, he and his team drew upon the stunning views and quiet, driftwood-strewn bay below to create a sophisticated seaside escape. A stunning blend of Nantucket-meets-Northwest, this 2,900 square-foot home is surrounded by forestal acreage and hedged in by large plots of rolling farmland. Don positioned the Craftsman’s waterside exterior to drink in the distant views of snow-tipped Mount Baker and ever-stretching views of Puget Sound. The interior was designed to be open and sunny, outfitted with luxury finishings to ensconce it’s modernity while still possessing traditional charm.
