Located on a stunning mountainside amid public forestlands, with views that rival those of national parks, the Wilderness Cabin celebrates the surrounding landscape while making a minimal impact on the land. Understanding that most activity would take place outdoors, living spaces were kept on the smaller side, with simple detailing to celebrate the beauty of the simple material palette of weathered cedar, steel, stone, and granite-colored terne roofing.

"The cabin was a labor of love for us all, a jewel box made of wood, stone, and steel. The site was snowed in for seven months of every year, so we had time to evolve the design and craft while construction was on hiatus over several winters. This gave us the time and space to think through each detail and get it right."
