Methow Cabin in Washington

Mar 2, 2016

Category: Living

The Methow Cabin near the North Cascades National Park in Winthrop, Washington is striking partly because it is so focused on accentuating its surroundings. Simple and paired down, this cabin designed by Eggleston|Farkas Architects has us wanting to head to the mountains for the weekend.

The cedar siding on the exterior of the cabin continues through the living space to create continuity between outside and in, just like the building’s large windows on either side. Each of those windows let the striking views of the valley flow through the building while keeping out the cold and snow. Wintery weather was something that the designers kept in mind while building this house – the foundation of the cabin was built high off the ground in order to make it easy to get in and out despite snow drifts, and the roof is sloped enough to shed snow easily. All in all, we think that this house in the woods is the perfect example of why buildings should reflect and complement their surroundings.
