Situated on the rocky coastline of Orcas Island, the Lone Madrone House uses local materials to blend into its rustic landscape. The exterior of the home is clad in western red cedar shingles, while a green roof attempts to replace the land that was disrupted during construction. Lined in douglas fir, the main living area plays host to a kitchen, dining, and living room flanked by a pair of sliding glass wall panels. These glazed doors open to create a direct dialogue with the natural surroundings, as well as provide expansive views of the sea to the south.
