From the architect. Wolf Creek View Cabin sits in a lightly treed meadow, surrounded by foothills and mountains in Eastern Washington. The home is designed as two interlocking “L’s”. A covered patio is located at the intersection of one “L,” offering a protected place to sit while enjoying sweeping views of the valley. A lighter screening “L” creates a courtyard that provides shelter from seasonal winds and an intimate space with privacy from neighboring houses.

The building mass is kept low in order to minimize the visual impact of the cabin on the valley floor. The roof line and walls extend into the landscape and abstract the mountain profiles beyond. Weathering steel siding blends with the natural vegetation and provides a low maintenance exterior. Balance Associates Architects believe this project is successful in its peaceful integration with the landscape and offers an innovative solution in form and aesthetics for cabin architecture.

Honestly this is one of my favorite residential projects on AD. It feels like a blend of Tom Kundig, Rick Joy, and just enough DWELL to make it comfortable without the douche-baggage.

If I were going to live in the woods, I would like for it to be in this house. http://t.co/IUIaKYJ

Beautiful! The house feels completely at home in the surroundings. The (rusted? patinated?) roofing is a delight.
