The beauty of Whidbey Island, off of Washington's coast, is a perfect location for Aldermash House, a retreat center designed in collaboration with the home's owner, Joy Moultin, builder Kim Hoelting, and Ross Chapin Architects. The Aldermash House borrows from both Pacific Northwest and East Asian traditions, and is described as a "choreography of space, an unfolding sequence of movement bringing together gardens and living areas.”

Aldermash is located on 11 acres of wetlands, which are accessed with raised walkways. The house can accommodate up to 25 guests, who come to the center for yoga and meditation sessions. To read more about this home, check out the writeup in the book Patterns of Home.
