* Residential Architecture: Wolf Creek View Cabin by Balance Associates Architects

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 14 August 2012

Residential Architecture: Wolf Creek View Cabin by Balance Associates Architects: “..Wolf Creek View Cabin sits in a lightly treed meadow, surrounded by foothills and mountains in Eastern Washington state, USA. 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..”  Truly lovely site; extensive glazing, natural light, views; interesting form and materiality; wood ceilings, wood slat screens; courtyards..
