Located on the Kenai River, this three level residence is elevated on twenty, 12” diameter, steel piles. It was designed to be the perfect “get-away” property and is used as a private fishing lodge.
Reclaimed cannery wood was used through-out the interior to articulate the space, providing a warm and rustic backdrop. Features include a grand staircase and a large, roof ridge skylight. The exterior of the house features a palette of green Kynar metal siding and Corten metal siding in an effort to blend in with the surrounding natural spruce forest.
The lower level includes the main entrance, mechanical room, and fish cleaning room. The main level features ample living, dining and kitchen entertaining spaces in an open concept plan along with three private, master bedroom / bathroom suites, a bunk bed kids and guests suite, and a separate multi-use privacy space (laundry, alternative entertaining space) that are screened from the “group” spaces by the reclaimed timber stairs. Completing the house, the third floor loft offers spill-over sleeping space and a kid’s play area overlooking the main living level.
