Nautical & Nice

Fitting such a striking form into the landscape wasn’t an afterthought: Tinker and Dick carefully sited the new construction so that it sheds winter storm winds that can top 80 mph, but still captures cool breezes in the summer. “It’s almost fish-shaped,” Tinker says. “There’s a little bit of nautical, ocean flavor to this thing.” Porthole windows pierce walls, the kitchen island is shaped like a surfboard, and the custom-designed kitchen table features an inlaid map of the 50-mile stretch of Oregon’s northern coastline.
