Natural environments can be both beautiful and dangerous, and 'Canyon House', a home overlooking the Clearwater River canyon in the wilderness of Washington state, manages to literally and figuratively teeter on that edge. The cottage home sites on a precariously steep canyon wall, providing spectacular views that are all the more thrilling because of their inherent sense of danger.
The design of the home, which was put together by architect Paul Hirzel, is also meant to elicit a certain degree of risk-taking. The home's exterior walls are covered in a corrugated aluminum facade, and that facade is covered with a wide wooden lattice. These raw materials are reminscent of construction sites, which creates an incomplete feeling around the home.
