Midcentury modern cabin takes shelter in Washington’s Methow Valley

Designed by Johnston Architects to take full advantage of its unique site, this midcentury modern cabin is nestled into a mountainside in Washington’s Methow Valley. The site sits on a bench high above the river, bisected with a natural berm. While this provided privacy, it required the main rooms to be focused in different directions to preserve the grand views.

The architects devised a solution of creating an “L” shaped plan, where the great room faces one way and the master bedroom faces the other way. The inside corner creates an intimate patio that is sheltered from the wind and neighboring property. Rusty steel on the exterior facade gives way to cedar on the more protected sides.

Encompassing 3,000 square feet, this cabin was designed to be light and airy. It responds to the specifics of the site, and to accommodate guests and family with grace without being too big. There is no wasted space, yet it feels generous.
