Designed by Stuart Silk Architects, this contemporary single family residence is situated Selah, Washington.
Description by Stuart Silk Architects
This home is located on a plateau surrounded by orchards and farmlands. 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.
