The work of Heliotrope, a Ballard architecture firm, has been profiled in the Pacific Northwest Magazine in Sunday’s Seattle Times.
The house has stunning views from where it sits on Orcas Island. “We really wanted the whole house to feel like it was on the rock,” Joe Herrin of Heliotrope tells the Times.
“The home, completed in 2009, intrudes as little as possible. A living roof, called the garden rooftop, has been placed over the media room sited a floor down into the earth. The line between built and unbuilt is blurred,” reports the Times.
