Gunn Ranch Methow Cabin
Designed by Kyle while at Balance Associates, this 1200 sf cabin with 300 sf garage is sited on the top of a hillside in the Methow Valley of Washington with dramatic panoramic views of the valley floor below. The rectangular plan is oriented on an east-west axis to take advantage of solar orientation and views. The outdoor dining area is protected from the occasional hill top wind gusts by the garage and the house and has a single roof plane that serves as a protector and connector between the two forms. The bedroom wing is nestled under the lower roof plan and has an outdoor shower area to the east.
