archatlas: Sky House Platform Architecture + Design LTD White Rock Cabin is a modest 850 SF cabin, set within the semi-arid foothills of North-Eastern Washington State. The landscape is vast, and characterized with rock outcrops, sage-brush, pine-trees and many lakes. The building is designed to create a distinct relationship to the landscape: On the ground floor, large south facing windows open onto a sloping knoll with expansive views of the Cascade foothills. The remaining windows are vertical apertures used to frame particular views. A north-facing window frames a distant lake. An eastern window looks down to an abandoned homesteaders cabin.
