Designed by Prentiss Balance Wickline Architects, Canyon House is an award-winning home located in a dramatic setting in Methow Valley, WA. The goal of this residential project is to create privacy and retain panoramic views.
It is a cozy house that is comprised of three separate buildings: the main cabin, a bunkhouse, and a garage. Retaining panoramic views around the house and also creating privacy are important things for the clients.
All forms can be connected and integrated into one structure thanks to the large shed roof. The house and the cabinet have an enclosed connection, forming a utility closet and a mudroom hallway.
The bunkhouse and the cabinet are joined by an open, covered breezeway, creating more privacy for the master suite near the bunkhouse. A U shape of the building creates a southern-facing central courtyard with a small water feature.
