DeForest Architects designed this house on Lake Wenatchee in Washington State.

.

Description from the architects:

Rustic. Modern. Cozy. Sophisticated. This mountain retreat designed by DeForest Architects was designed  to bridge two worlds with natural ease.

The owners spent many seasons on Lake Wenatchee in the Cascade Mountains before finding the perfect spot to build. They came to DeForest  with enthusiasm for the design process and a vision of a house that blended seamlessly with the site. Some key themes include:

* A secret room, sleeping porch and built-in alcoves make this cabin cozy for two and comfortable for a crowd

* A natural mix: combining the warmth of wood with low maintenance tile, stone, and composites

* A tale of two masters: clever ideas to accommodate a range of friends and families. sleeping loft, flex bath

* Designing for four seasons: low-maintenance materials, overhangs to shed snow and create summer shade, indoor-outdoor spaces
