This 7-acre island complex was originally designed and built in 1967 by Malcolm Cameron; a printmaker, illustrator and architect.  He was locally known to have built wooden steamboats as a hobby.  His wife an accomplished artist; sculpted soapstone inspired by local wildlife. The island has a long rich history of indigenous Salish people and then more recently the Lummi tribe.  After several years, the current owners committed to making what was their weekend retreat a full time family home while retaining the site's original spirit.  

We crafted a Bluff House guest quarters, a South Guesthouse for several grandchildren and a 3-bay service building.  Maintaining the original palette of the place dictated a strict adherence to stained cedar, ledgestone and an empathy for local flora and fauna.
