Description:

Situated in Mazama, Washington, the site was delighted in for a long time as a campground by the crew. The configuration minimizes effect to nature by raising parts of the habitation off the ground with little solid docks. The section to the house is a marginally lifted walk that prompts the passage and stair. This passage opens up to a 1/2 story living space and kitchen which are moored by a midway found chimney and the stair.

This stair prompts the “tent like” rooms with low dividers on the second floor. Both finishes of the home have indoor/open air spaces. There is additionally a deck and lifted catwalk that keeps running between the trees, over a little valley, and purges onto a green clearing in the forested areas where the family used to camp.
