NECK POINT COVE | SHAW ISLAND, WA
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.
