This beautiful house with stunning views on the Buck Mountain was designed by Washington-based architecture firm Indigo Architecture + Interiors. From the architect, “Floating above a carpet of green moss on the steep slopes of Orcas Island’s Buck Mountain, this home’s foundation touches the rocky ground along only two slim concrete fins. These lean legs in turn support a dramatic steel Vierendeel frame allowing the wings of the house to cantilever 28 feet outward in both directions. This house unabashedly celebrates the drama of its natural setting, leaving the land almost entirely untouched by its presence; merely a vantage point from which to observe the panorama.”
