Darden House

Here we have a space designed to take in the views. This home stands tall, with a ‘crow’s nest’ perched perfectly at the end of a sky bridge on the upper level. The exterior confirms this is an intriguing solution to joining spaces, allowing the main house and garage levels to feel as one. 2atara knew of the challenge in working with a complex site on the hillside, though also knew that our design ideas always surpass!

Helmsman House

In keeping with our commitment to sustainable design, this project is a showcase for successful execution. With room to ‘think big’ in the design stage of this acreage site, 2atara worked to keep an existing barn on the land – and to integrate its history into a new and contemporary home. The concept of work and play is finely balanced here, incorporating two small living spaces with one large wood shop. In a place such as this, one is bound to breathe easy – with a surrounding deck, central open fireplace and that old barn to call home.

Completed Studio

Completed 200 sq. foot studio designed with versatility in mind.  Work and creative space with convertible sleeping arrangements, ample storage and ensuite 3/4 bath.  We designed and built this unit to fit a range of needs while creating minimal impact on property coverage and usable yard space.

Brady Art Studio

The ultimate above garage studio, this gem will be an absolute dream to occupy.  With clever soffited symmetry, moving walls, and raised bed area the room seems many times larger than the documented square footage.  Well insulated and with a mini split heating system the energy bills will be extremely low.  More pictures coming soon!

Eiler Bridge Project

Here is a great example of the type of architectural concrete work we love doing in our Eiler Bridge project. A fun new entrance to this lovely waterfront house will help anchor it to the site.  Work underway also includes bathroom remodels and some exciting sleeping lofts for the kids.

Euclid Remodel Complete

Located on the water this lovely home required some strategic updating.  Working with the concept of openness and flexibility the downstairs was transformed into a media room, gym, and guests bedroom with a large glass sliding wall. The kitchen remodel then pushed and pulled spatial relationships through color to transform it into a large open airy space.

Bathroom remodel, Crystal Springs Bainbridge Island

Rather than adding an extra addition on the house with its added carbon footprint, 2atara squeezed a spectacular bathroom into a tiny space.  With the concept of a wood box (walkin closet) and glass box (shower) juxtaposed against each other we manipulate space.  The result?  A room that feels much bigger and more inviting than expected.

Hackenberg Remodel is now complete

Nestled on the banks of the Port Townsend Sound, this artists studio provides unusually flexible working spaces for the artist.  With giant insulated barn doors that open onto glass covered canopies any painting experience can be created.  On the inside, custom designed steel pulley loft winches, rolling ladder, and clamping systems provide the artist room for real magic to take place.

2atara owner, Craden Henderson worked on the master plan for the Grow Community project when working for Asani LLC.  Now with 2atara we’re still doing some work on the project such as the yellow tensile canvas cover and trellis in the center of this image.

Sheridan Bathroom

This contemporary bathroom remodel has a spa like feel with a fully tiled steam shower and new countertops. I can’t think of a better way to wake up on those cold mornings than a nice steam shower and heated floors!
