Beautiful Houses: Foster Loop in Washington
Fri, 12/23/2011 - 03:15
The idea in this series is to show beautiful and inspiring houses. Houses that are remarkable for its design, elegance, elements, concept or simply because they are beautiful. So if you like architecture, interior design and beautifully designed houses, you are at the right spot. Check out this week beautiful house and stay tuned for more...
Th Foster Loop is a project by Balance Associates Architects. Located in Mazama, Washington, the site was enjoyed for many years as a campground by the family. The design minimizes impact to the environment by raising the residence off the ground with small concrete piers. The entry to the house is a slightly elevated walk that leads to the entry and stair. This entry opens up to a 1 1/2 story living space and kitchen which are anchored by a centrally located fireplace and the stair. This stair leads to the "tent like" bedrooms with low walls on the second floor.
In my opinion, this house looks like an updated and super cool version of a tree house. Besides being a beautiful house, the idea of living among the trees is really interesting, I would live to try it out ;)
Check out Balance Associates Architects website for further details about this and other projects. See you next time.
