Hillside Sanctuary by Hoedemaker Pfeiffer offers elevated views of coastal Washington



American firm Hoedemaker Pfeiffer used stone, wood and glass to create a main dwelling and guest house for a steep, forested site in the Pacific Northwest overlooking the ocean.
Hillside Sanctuary is located on a remote site in the San Juan Islands, which lie just off the coast of northern Washington.

Seattle firm Hoedemaker Pfeiffer was charged with creating a cosy, waterfront refuge that would consist of a primary dwelling and a detached guest house.

Within the home, the top level serves as the pr...
