Tucked on a steeply sloping site with expansive views of the city and mountains, Myrtle View House is a complete reimagining of an existing 1950’s residence. The compact low form with dark stained wood and simple detailing allows the house to maintain a low profile and quietly nestle into the slope.

Designed by Rick Joy Architects, this all-season home occupies a 1.5-acre, west facing site in Sun Valley, Idaho. Carefully sited on a steep hillside, the house was strategically positioned to maximize visual exposure to nearly 360-degree views and minimize disturbance to the native landscape.
Replacing a stark, all-white interior with a warm, wood-based palate proved to be a wise choice for the owners of this high-rise apartment. With floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Elliott Bay and downtown Seattle, the unit’s new oak finishes offer a welcome contrast to the often gray and rainy panorama.
