It isn't just the views that are stunning, but even the house!

We may undeniably claim that tall trees help us in having a house designed close to nature. Tall trees uncover the beauty of the forest and provide natural air and comfort to the homeowner. Today, we will explore how the designer made use of these tall trees to let its design stand out. This house is actually situated in a forested slope along the eastern edge of the Case Inlet and this small retreat opens to a western view of the Olympic Mountains and the Puget Sound. This is called as the Case Inlet Retreat.

Case Inlet Retreat is intended for a family in Washington State. According to the architect, this house has a lot of 20 acres on the Key Peninsula overlooking the Case Inlet and the Olympic mountains beyond. The owners in fact had been coming to this site for several years, visiting in summers to camp in the sunny meadow along the ridge and paddle the sound from the end of winding path below. Let us see how the designer maximize the beauty of the nature that will match the design of the house through the images below.
