Small Courtyard House on White River by Robert Hutchison Architect
This little living arrangement situated on the banks of the White River five miles from Mt. Rainier unobtrusively mixes into the encompassing woodland. A passage yard serves as a move space from outside to inside, and keeps the pervasive elk crowds under control. A steel-clad chimney mass isolates the front room from a secured open air porch.
By working tirelessly with our customer (who likewise served as General Contractor for the task), the building foot shaped impression was kept as conservative as could be allowed to minimize site unsettling influence. The home typifies the little home living development through its accentuation on configuration over size.
