Building Design


Use an Architectural Language Appropriate to Bainbridge Island


The Design Guidelines do not prescribe architectural styles, but projects are expected to have an attractive and coherent style that fits well with the climate and context of Bainbridge Island.


a.    Consider the context and history of Bainbridge Island in the building's massing, roof forms, and siting

b.    Use materials that are locally sourced and regenerative wherever possible

c.    Include weather-protection and other climate appropriate design as an integral part of the architectural language and detailing

d.    Use surrounding building forms (found in context analysis) to inform building shape and form
