Wilridge Winery Cabins

This is a design for a group of retreat cabins at a remote winery on Naches Heights near Yakima, Washington.
Occupying 80 acres, the 5 cabins are situated to take advantage of dramatic views of the surrounding landscape and vineyard. The design responds to the predominant west winds on the ridge by nestling each cabin in the loess of the andesite basins.
The roofs were designed to maximize solar gain for photovoltaic panels.  The cabins feature abundant natural light and ventilation, and ecologically sensitive composting toilets to reduce their impact on the agricultural landscape.
