Thank you to the Kitsap Sun for this fantastic article on our modular home.
MODULAR LIVING FLOATS TO BAINBRIDGE ISLAND
The homes are built inside a factory, so they’re constructed out of the elements and are sealed up and made weather-resistant before they head outside, said Craden Henderson, owner of 2atara, the Bainbridge design company that coordinated all the aspects of this particular home build. The homes…
This Thursday morning (December 21st) 2atara Design Build will be bringing a sustainably designed modern modular home (built in Idaho) onto the Island via the Seattle/Bainbridge 5.30am ferry — hope it fits! It will be in two massive 70ft pieces that will be craned into place at their new home on Lofgren Road.
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!
The ultimate above garage studio, this gem will be an absolute dream to occupy. With clever soffit 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!
Located on the water this lovely home required some strategic updating.

The kitchen remodel then pushed and pulled spatial relationships through color to transform it into a large open airy space.
