Hidden within a dense forest at nearly 6,000 feet, the Spruce Ridge Cabin provides an immersive experience in nature. The high elevation creates a micro climate and habitat that supports rare species of flora and fauna. Paramount to the design process was to minimize the impact on this fragile ecosystem. Modest in appearance and reflective of the surrounding nature, the home has a minimal footprint with two cantilevered forms clad in dark cedar. A foot bridge leading to the main entry provides a physical and emotional transition into nature.
