Olson Kundig Architects created a camouflaged concrete house called ‘The Pierre’ in San Juan Islands, Washington. The owner’s affection for a stone outcropping on her property inspired the design of this house. Conceived as a retreat nestled into the rock, the Pierre (the French word for stone) celebrates the materiality of the site.
I like the combination of brick and stone. I like how each window has an ornamentation above it. I like the curve of the rod on the balconies. I like how the corners have that checkered concrete design.
