Sitka, Lincoln City

Posted on October 7th, by raskin in New Construction. Comments Off on Sitka, Lincoln City

After creating a master plan for Sitka Center of Art and Ecology, I designed these two artist residences were the first phase of implementation. These artist residences used to house artists teaching classes or for residencies where artists, writers, musicians, and natural science scholars are given up to 3 1/2 months to conduct their work. The residences were fit into the landscape to provide private views of the surrounding Cascade Head Experimental Forest and to subtly reinforce the existing sculpture garden to make it a place of meeting as well as place to view art.

Care and attention was given to inserting the cottages into the site to protect the trees. Grade beams were used instead of typical foundations to minimize disruption of the ground and to span over roots.
