Selah Residence is located on a high plateau surrounded by orchards and farmlands in Selah, Washington designed by Stuart Silk Architects in collaboration with interior designer Jennifer Randall & Associates Design. Two intersecting diagonal axes were derived from the orientation of primary mountain views. A dramatic eighteen-foot, glass-covered concrete drum, located at the intersection of the axes fills the home with natural light. Stone clad gables stripped of all unnecessary detail enhance the drama of the gables and strengthen their rich association with nearby agrarian building forms. A stone wall shields the pool and cabana from prevailing summer winds while strategic openings focus views on the landscape and the mountains.
