Natural home - Seattle-based Gary Gladwish Architecture created this natural home architectural & interior design for a homeowner who had dreamed of living on this island for 54 years before actually making her move. The hillside home on a forest lot on Orcas Island in Washington State sits on a slope dotted with madrone trees, firs, beech, thistle, moss and rocks.

The garden is overlooked by a veranda and a sparse main room with shoji screens, tatami mats and a hanging paper light conceived specially by Isamu Noguchi. The tea cermony pavilion is a rich hybrid of traditional and modern design. In contrast to the shrines and temples of the city, the house is domestic in scale and is connected to the rhythms of everyday life.
