This wooden house’s exterior and interiors beautifully merge with the surrounding landscape. Bohlin Cywinski Jackson designs the nature-infused Henry Island Guesthouse in Washington. Large openings, earthy design materials, and wooden features create a beautiful contemporary addition to a private residence on a secluded island in the Pacific Northwest. The site is reached by boat, and a winding path leads from a dock through a wooded area into a sunlit meadow.

The guest house design is a flexible space to accommodate extended stays by family and friends. The rectangular building holds a central living area and two bedrooms. The interiors with Douglas fir and cedar-clad house exterior look warm and welcoming, giving the modern house design a unique character. The guesthouse creates a distinct architectural ensemble with the residence.

The building is located uphill from the primary house – close enough to feel connected but far enough away to offer privacy. Built into a gentle slope, the guesthouse partly cantilevers over the site. One bedroom looks out toward the bay, while the other faces the forest and feels more intimate. Finishes and interior design create a relaxing atmosphere and a natural relationship to the landscape.
