Little House By MW Works

The Pacific Northwest is a land of wonder, filled with dense forestry, expansive lakes, and gorgeous overlooks that put most parts of the world to shame. Washington is no exception to this rule, and MW Works, one of the state’s top architecture firms, has successfully captured the essence of the wild, untamed land with their recent project, Little House.

Little House sits atop a serene overlook near Seabeck, Washington — towering over the Hood Canal and blending seamlessly with its surroundings thanks to a blackened cement and cedar facade. Serving as a holiday home for a Houston, Texas-based client, the dwelling utilizes a compact, efficient, and uncomplicated approach to natural immersion through the use of minimal construction and design elements. The two-story, 1,440 square foot space is demarcated by carved openings, large windows that run the length of the home, and a canopy that serves as an entryway to a cozy porch area. A mudroom, kitchen, and an open-plan living area are found on the first floor, while two bedrooms and a shared bath are housed upstairs. Medium-density fibreboard and pine plywood dress the interior of the home, creating a natural splendor that’s only been enhanced by the inclusion of a large skylight, showering the home in natural luminance.
