Architect Visit: Greene Partners Architecture and Design

August 2, 2010

Located in the San Juan Islands in Washington State, Greene Partners Architecture and Design describe themselves as “ruralists—collaborative by nature and environmentally aware and responsible.” The tradition of vernacular architecture is demonstrated in their island homes’ sense of place and focus on sustainability. We like the nod to tradition mixed with a modern approach to living space.
