Miner’s Refuge by Johnston Architects
The Miner’s Refuge, intended as a weekend retreat in the beautiful but often harsh terrain of the Methow, was designed with these concerns in mind. The building designed by Johnston Architects is carefully sited at the base of the hillside tucked into the tree line to take advantage of and preserve the surrounding views. The building massing is mindful and reminiscent of the history of mining in the valley. Its long linear circulation corridor leads from the entry along the entire length of the house giving access to the living and sleeping spaces.
