Miner’s Refuge / Johnston Architects

© Will Austin Photography

The Miner’s Refuge, intended as a weekend retreat, is carefully sited at the base of the hillside and tucked into the tree line to take advantage of and preserve the surrounding views. Designed by Johnston Architects its mass is dug into the topography, anchoring the structure to the site. The outdoors is pulled in through dramatic open views. The protected patio and expansive vista of meadow and mountain are incorporated as major components of the design.  More photographs and drawings following the break.
