Alexander Beach House

Situated in the San Juan Islands, the Alexander Beach House is a modest 3,200 sf home overlooking Burrows Bay. The site presented tension generated from steep grade, a narrow lot, and privacy concerns with close adjacent structures. The schemes explored alternatives utilizing a private outdoor courtyard that provides for privacy, indoor/outdoor connections and captures the dramatic views to the bay. The clients wished to have a one bedroom house that included a connected guest apartment for family visits. This guest units becomes integrated seamlessly into the massing, yet allows for internal privacy between clients and their guests.
