A FINNE house

The latest house by Nils Finne is perched on the shore of the Hood Canal, a long, fjord-like arm of Puget Sound in Washington State. Opening up the mostly glazed living space gives the compact 2400 SF space the feel of a large front porch facing the water. Anchoring the north end of the living space is a two-story building volume containing several bedrooms and separate his/her office spaces. Simple yet elegant finishes make this more than a lake front cabin though. A special place far from the madding crowd but definitely not far from creature comforts. It's this sustainable "richness" and well as a strong sense of place that FINNE Architects bring to life in all their projects.

I do like this house, but the size and position of that tiny wood burning heater and chimney are just not right. With such imposing and well thought-out architecture, why would they do something like that?

Stunning. One day that is the exact house I want.
