The creative minds at First Lamp Archiecture sought to offer more space and better views to the Badger Mountain House in Richland, Washington. Another primary concern for the architects was how to unite the home with the surrounding landscape. The firm was inspired by the immaculate lines of traditional Japenese architecture.
The home is arranged perpendicularly on the foothills of Badger Mountain in order to augment the Northern view. Meanwhile, the south side of the home opens up to reveal a pool surrounded by the picture-perfect views of the mountain peak.
Other design features include high, vaulted ceilings, exposed concrete and cedar wood accents that run from interior to exterior, making the demarcation between indoor and outdoor hazy at best.
