This Home is Structured to Accommodate High Tide Without Flooding

Designs Northwest Architects put together a cabin located along the Camano Island in Washington that is built to accommodate the environment and the constant coming of high tide with an elevated platform. The home works in conjunction with the natural landscape rather than altering the landscape to suit the design of the home, which makes the structure much more ecological.

The cabin is modern while maintaining a rustic appearance that is low maintenance and able to withstand the rise of the water without harming the structure. The house is built on a raise platform so that as the water moves inwards at high tide, the home remains unaffected. The raised building eliminates the potential of flooding and damage.
