Loop House by Heliotrope Architects
Heliotrope Architects has designed Loop House in Orcas Island, WA. Following is some information by the architects, “This residence is situated on a rock outcropping several hundred feet above the ocean, with a western view across the San Juan Islands. It is constructed of a prefabricated steel moment-frame roof structure with conventional wood-framed ‘boxes’ floating beneath it.
Exterior walls consist of a custom site-built teak and cedar curtain wall system, with the ‘boxes’ clad in fir milled on the property. Other primary materials include a fir-slat ceiling milled on the property, flagstone floors and stone walls. The owners are building and landscaping the home themselves, with help from assorted highly-talented island craftspeople.”
