Restoration Point Residence
Originally designed by noted architect Carl Gould, this waterfront home on Bainbridge Island was showing its age. The new owners, who envisaged a family retreat for generations to come, hired architect Jim Cutler to make it a home for the 21st century while preserving its original character. Cutler said his design was influenced by the guiding question, “What would Gould do?”. A complete renovation of the home followed including a re-imagined window and door fenestration, new central stair and extensive wall paneling to match existing cerused woodwork. The clients were keenly interested in making the home as energy efficient as possible, installing a ground source thermal heat system and a photo-voltaic array for electrical.
