Prentiss Balance Wickline Architects' Sleek Design is Award-Winning

Forest cabins are good for retreats out in nature and away from the ever-developing digital world. When it comes to architecturally arranging one such dwelling, designers either create a lush and luxurious abode or a minimalist modern dwelling. The Lot 6 Cabin by Washington-based studio Prentiss Balance Wickline Architects is a mixture of both. Designed for "an active couple who loves the outdoors," the low-slung abode is made to be functional and to not interfere too blatantly with the surrounding natural landscape.

Relying on "plywood, shiplap siding and standing-seam metal" as primary materials, the dwelling boasts a one-storey layout at the base of a mountain. What sets this structure apart from other forest cabins is its recognition — the structure received the 2018 design award from the AIA's Spokane chapter.
