Colvos Passage

2013

Creating a symbiotic relationship between construction and nature, this modern Gig Harbor residence stands proud along the Peninsula Shoreline with an unparalleled view of Mount Rainier.  Using renewable materials, steel columns and beams add contrast to the exposed straight grain Fir that is expressed throughout the structure.  The bare exposed building materials such as concrete, steel, wood and even granite temper the modern design with a tribute to the site’s natural setting.  Sustainable systems such as solar panels and solar water reduce the carbon footprint and reflect environmental vision.  Environmental foresight in harmony with design aesthetics makes this a truly modern house that will give back to nature and the resident for years to come.
