Okada Marshall House
East Sooke BC

2400 SF

A rugged H-shaped house wraps around itself to contain two inner courtyard rooms. All windows aim at moss-covered rocks or the Pacific Ocean, creating lively contrasts as one moves through the house.  Elongated hallways emphasize the house’s sense of expansiveness, within a compact footprint. The house is a prototype for the owner’s Japanese Shou-sugi ban charred wood company, which needs no maintenance and will never rot.
