The form of the house reflects the marine environment below, evoking sails and hulls. Three bedrooms, three and one-half bathrooms, open living, kitchen, and dining spaces, garages, a wine room and a work loft are all incorporated into a gull-wing shell that sits on a solid concrete base.

Generous eating/play terraces face the views of the bay and West Seattle to the southwest while a small sunken garden to the north is designed to celebrate the houses' rainwater. A large swath of Seattle Parks + Recreation land to the east of the residence was reclaimed and landscaped for use by the residents.
