Wharfside Complex

Bainbridge Island, Washington

1998

 

One of three buildings in the Wharfside Complex, the Parfitt Building (shown) is a mixed-use structure including:  basement parking, two floors of offices, and 2 luxury condominium residences on the top floor.

 

A “barn” shaped mass, reminiscent of the adjacent converted net shed (the oldest building on Bainbridge Island), rises through the two office floors and the residential level.  A series of shed roofs and roof terraces reside on the east side of the “barn” mass.

 

The building is organized into two wings with the north wing approx. 4’ higher in elevation than south (water-side) wing.  This was done to fit the building within the height envelope limitations.  The two wings are slightly out of alignment in plan in order to achieve the best “fit” on the land.
