Fairhaven Residence

Location: Bellingham, WA

Square footage: 3,000 SQFT

While partnered in a small development company, Sean was part of a team that purchased an old house on a double lot. The spare lot was used to design a new custom residence. Working with a small lot and the client's desire for privacy and orientation toward views, the home went vertical. The five split-levels end with a roof deck and art studio on top. Each bedroom is equipped with it’s own loft. Natural materials are used throughout the interior, with Corten and board form concrete forming the exterior, blending well with the landscape.
