Herron Island Retreat / First Lamp Architecture

Herron Island Retreat

Herron Island Retreat is a weekend cabin designed by Seattle-based First Lamp Architecture. The cabin is located in Herron Island, Washington. Inspired by the separation of herron island from the mainland by case inlet, the cabin was designed as a detachment from the owners’ busy work schedule to a place for relaxation in their time off.

Herron Island Retreat 1

The entry sequence of the cabin was designed to enhance the feeling of detachment. As you leave your car behind on the driveway there is a floating stair which leads you down the slope of the site to the entry bridge of the cabin. The bridge acts as a physical separation from the site and the sanctuary of the cabin; creating a distinct sound and reverberation as you cross its span to the entry door.
