Creating a lofty perch on a 40 degree sloped lot above Bainbridge Island's Manzanita Bay, this high-style home achieves a spacious beauty among its surrounding firs. Part of the house is cantilevered over the slope, being supported by sculptural knee braces. On approach you see the house massing with three cedar faced boxes, the central box rising a story above the flanking pair. An arc of glass around the entrance gives the feeling of importance and sophistication. The open interior floats natural light throughout from four skylights. The vast array of windows in addition to a two- story window-wall in the stairwell streams light into the first and second floors. The overall design results in a sophisticated sense of space and light in the midst of the tall firs which gives this house a sense of style and comfort.
