Port Townsend Residence by Lawrence Architecture

The Port Townsend Residence is a home situated on a heavily-wooded site near Port Townsend in Washington, USA. It was designed by Lawrence Architecture for a retired couple in their mid-60s who have lived on a sailboat for the past 30 years and now have finally decided to move ashore.

A new home for a clearing in the woods composed of four sections: a master bedroom suite, an office, the living spaces (main cabin), and a guest suite. The general contractor was Tollefson Builders.

Program: A main cabin with living and cooking spaces and a settee for dining; sleeping quarters for the owners; separate office space; sleeping quarters for the owner’s friends and family, many of whom live outside the US; an “engine room”; ample built-ins and lockers for storage including 200 LF of shelving; and (finally) a bathroom of their own that isn’t shared by everyone else in a marina.

A separate building with 2-car garage, work shop, and an accessory dwelling unit.

Site: A 10 acre heavily-wooded site on the Olympic Peninsula near Port Townsend. Originally containing a grove of deciduous trees, the building site is a clearing within a forest of fir and cedars.
