Balance Associates Architects has designed the Pine Forest Cabin.
This 850 square foot small contemporary forest home is located in Winthrop, Washington, USA. The Pine Forest Cabin project completed in 2007.
Two concrete walls cradle the box and allow it to cantilever over the hillside, reducing effective site disturbance. Elevating the cabin allowed for unobstructed views down slope and to the mountains beyond, transforming a modest living space from ordinary room to a viewing platform that extends from inside to out. This project demonstrates Balance Associates Architects’ belief that architecturally interesting solutions can be achieved for budgets of all sizes without sacrificing quality or aesthetics.
