The Port Ludlow residence is the kind of home that makes me sigh after looking at the lovely environment that embraces it and, of course, after admiring its stylish and welcoming design. It was developed by the team from Finne Architects and rests on a forested waterfront lot in the northern area of the Hood Canal.
The green surroundings are respected by the house they’re sheltering, as it reduces its impact over the environment in several ways, such as solar passive design, being able to take full advantage of the natural light. Secondly, it features roof overhangs for preventing excessive heating and protecting against rain, the frame construction improves the home’s insulation and last, but not least, the sustainable materials that define the home are natural wood, linoleum floors, low-VOC paints and recycled steel. The exterior beauties are reflected in the home’s own appearance, as it’s extremely elegant, welcoming and stylish.
