Fidalgo Island Lookout
2020 Kansas Avenue
Designed by Richard T. Broderick of Sparkitecture Design Solutions. This 2500 square foot cliff house is elegantly sited on a commanding bluff with ocean and vivid San Juan Islands sunsets. The site falls in a number of steep intervals onto a lower terrace before tumbling further still into a lush tangle of brush and evergreens bordering protected wetlands below. The structure opted for simple, site-informed massing - a trio of stacked rectangular boxes, one more elongated than the last, wedged into the cliffside. The three floors were arranged according to a distinct functional hierarchy – living/social areas on the main first level; master suite in the middle incorporating two separate

Lloyd Wright, Architect
The Dorland Residence, 1950
1370 Morada Place
Here Lloyd Wright continues his tradition of “Organic Architecture” utilizing a program and architectural elements he developed while practicing with his father. Working within a hexagonal grid, the familiar “Tadpole” design fits comfortably on the site, and affords privacy from within and without. Wright’s typical wood framed glass sliders open the public living areas to the hexagonal pool and garden, integrating indoor and outdoor living space, successfully transforming ordinary living activities with a continuous subliminal absorption of and connection to the natural environment. It is no surprise that Dorland himself compared the experience of the house to being on a vacation. The

Laing House, 1935
1642 Pleasant Way
Pictured: plate 43, Los Angeles County Museum of Art 'Guide to Architecture in Southern California.' Although trained by Neutra, a salute to Frank Lloyd Wright is evidenced throughout, especially in the way Harris handles the site. In keeping with Wright’s admonition that the building should be of the Hill, and not on the Hill, Harris carefully sets the garage into the slope, and elevates Professor Laing's grand Salon above the garage to frame a picturesque view, while utilizing a portion of the garage roof as an outdoor dining terrace. Residence includes a generous open plan living area with fireplace and outdoor patios.
