House of the Week 135: Cliff House
The residence on a cliffside lot in Gig Harbour, Washington was designed by Architect Scott Allen while a still named principal at Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen. The programme of the house is inverted as one descends stairs to the water interspersed by a series of decks, terraces, and bridges that create spaces for living and entertaining. The palette of materials were selected for their abilities to withstand this marine environment, including copper, concrete and cedar.
