The Point is a contemporary residence located in Washington, United States, designed by Kor Architects.


A family home that blurs the distinction between interior and exterior space through its unique connection to the natural landscape. A set of three pavilions, connected by a north-south spine, allow for different levels of privacy, while a simple palette of wood, stone, concrete, and steel allows the architecture to recede and let nature take center stage. This connection to nature is heightened by a series of water features, which flow under the building into a large architectonic feature made to resemble a native pond adjacent to the lake. Terraces adjacent to the living spaces, a hidden path to the lake shore, and two outdoor rooms with fire pits further integrate the building into the site. Energy-efficient insulation, windows, geothermal heating, and natural in-place filtration beds in the water features reduce the impact on the site.
