Lauren Geremia, the founder and principal designer of Geremia Design, together with architecture firm Olson Kundig, has completed the False Bay House and Writer’s Cabin.
Their client, an active executive, who loves hiking, kayaking, and crabbing, and is an avid host and cook, wanted a home that was comfortable for entertaining and a showcase for his growing art collection.
Nestled in a quiet bay in the San Juan Islands of Washington State, the house features an open plan and floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize the incredible views.
Double height windows in the living room frame the picturesque bay and illuminate the silk Tai Ping rust carpet, while the Laurier Blanc acrylic glass Hekla Side Table & Stool, complement the Taylor Forest club chair, that sits beneath the Amir Zaki waterfall photograph.
In the dining room, a Wintercheck Factory Light sits atop a credenza by Wüd Furniture. Iron and saddle leather Casamidy chairs surround the Nolan Dining Table by Troscan Design, while the lighting fixture is Mary Wallis’s Melbourne 3-Tier Pendant in matte black.
Also on the property is The Writer’s Cabin, a 500-square-foot glass guest cabin, that’s surrounded by three wooden decks that, through a system of hydraulic winches, wire rope, pivoting sheaves and lead blocks, can be raised to serve as shutters, easily securing the cabin when not in use.
