Lopez Island Beach Cabin

Beginning with an outdated 1962 split-level beachfront house, the challenge for this remodel involved the transformation and recycling of the original 1960s split-level house into a home that’s connected to its location. “The rural, agrarian structures of Lopez Island served as inspiration for the design,” notes Jim Graham. “We wanted to create something that meshed with the landscape, and that felt like a cabin.” Photography: Benjamin Benschneider.
