6 Exterior Butterfly Roofline Prefab Building Type Design Photos And Ideas

Seattle-based Stillwater Dwellings designed this one-story prefab home just north of Seattle in Edmunds, Washington for a client who wanted to “age in place.” With this in mind, Stillwater provided wide hallways and an open concept living space, with the company’s signature glass wall for year-round daylight and views of the outdoors. A deep overhanging roof shades the interior, along with other features like clerestory windows, natural materials, and high ceilings reflecting Stillwater’s commitment to sustainable design and the environment.
