Studhorse, located in Winthrop, Washington State and designed by architecture firm Olson Kundig is family home for the adventurous. It is composed of four buildings, centered on a central courtyard and pool.
“It’s like a little campground, and you go tent to tent. The materials are tough on the outside, because of the high-desert climate, but the inside is cozy, like getting into a sleeping bag—protected, warm, and dry,” says the architect.
When talking about the site, the architect explains, “The site was completely empty when we began, except for that rock! It is a glacial erratic—a rock that glaciers drop as they recede—and it became the center point for the project. It’s relatively close to the bar, so it becomes a place to sit, or put your drink. I thought of it as a big piece of furniture.”
The swimming pool has amazing views of the surrounding Studhorse Ridge and Pearrygin Lake. Take a look at the complete story after the jump
