Chuckanut Drive Residence

Bellingham, WA United States


Project Description

2009 RADA

Architectural Interiors / Merit

Architect Bob Hull, FAIA, and his staff judiciously deployed wood detailing inside this Bellingham, Wash., home. Mindful of the client's budget, as well as the aesthetic risks in using too much of one material, they interspersed poured concrete and drywall with a palette of maple, cedar, and Douglas fir. “We tried to detail the house in a simple, not extravagant, way,” Hull says.

The project's honey-colored ceilings consist of exposed plywood, roof joists, and skip sheathing. Red and yellow tongue-and-groove paneling echoes the home's exterior siding. And metal-clad wood windows serve to strengthen the link between indoors and out.

“The warmth of the wood palette is great,” said a judge. “The interiors are amazing—beautifully detailed.”
