This incredible outdoor and adventurous house lies in the extraordinary Methow Valley. No matter where you are in the house the view is always equally great.

In the incredible, glacial Methow Valley in the northern Cascades of Washington state lies this special and adventures house. Designed and built by Olson Kundig the four building composed house has an tough outside with materials made for taking a pounding from the harsh and changing climate outside, from sun-drenched hot summers to cold, snowy winters.
Each building has an carefully composed view of the surrounding Studhorse Ridge and Pearrygin Lake. The public areas, such as the family room, kitchen, and bar, are grouped together in a structure that opens up almost entirely, with sliding glass windows all along the walls. The master bedroom, kids’ bedroom, and den are in another building. A third is for guest rooms, to allow guests their privacy. A sauna is in the fourth building with a private, framed view looking out over the valley.
