Located on an island in Washington, The Fieldhouse is a lovely family retreat with an angled, shed-style roof and a pretty big chimney. It was designed by architecture studio Hoedemaker Pfeiffer and it’s a very charming structure. Although it’s quite small, this doesn’t feel like a tiny or cluttered space. It’s a single-level structure with big windows and glass walls and it’s been built using locally-sourced stone and salvaged wood. This palette of materials helps it blend into the local vernacular and also gives it a really cozy vibe.

The interior is open and welcoming and very much like the exterior. The doors and windows have these factory-style steel frames which look sleek and elegant but also give the structure a retro look. The color palette mostly reduced to natural wood and stone tones but to add you can add the red kitchen cabinetry and all the other matching features. There’s a chimney room with a stacked stone fireplace and built-in seating all around it. There’s also an outdoor fire pit with log seating and a dedicated bbq area. Everything comes together to create a very beautiful and inviting retreat where family and friends can enjoy each other’s company.
The kitchen has direct access outdoors through a wooden back door
