Foster Loop by Balance Associates Architects

Seattle-based studio Balance Associates Architects has designed the Foster Loop project.

Completed in 2007, this 1,653 square foot two story cabin is located in Mazama, a small village nestled in the Methow Valley of the Methow River in the eastern part of the Washington state, USA.

Foster Loop by Balance Associates Architects:

“Located in Mazama, Washington, the site was enjoyed for many years as a campground by the family. The design minimizes impact to the environment by raising the residence off the ground with small concrete piers. The entry to the house is a slightly elevated walk that leads to the entry and stair. This entry opens up to a 1 1/2 story living space and kitchen which are anchored by a centrally located fireplace and the stair.

This stair leads to the “tent like” bedrooms with low walls on the second floor. Both ends of the residence have indoor/outdoor spaces. There is also a deck and elevated catwalk that runs between the trees, across a small valley, and empties onto a grassy clearing in the woods.”
