Nestled in a grove of ponderosa pine trees on a gently sloping hillside, the Pringle Falls House looks out over rolling landscape at seven peaks of the Cascade Mountains in the distance. The structure steps down the hillside creating dynamic interior arrangements with a unique bar area in the kitchen which looks down over a lowered living room. Massive window and patio door walls open the homes interior living spaces up to the exterior covered patios. Slatted screen walls provide privacy and soften the light trickling into several private ‘areas of refuge’ tucked away discreetly among the folds of the building’s exterior.
A separate entrance serves a guest suite or semi-detached home-office off of the large and welcoming courtyard. Textured rustic wood flooring juxtaposes the clean contemporary lines of the mid century modern inspired design creating a light and bright yet warm and cozy modern aesthetic within this comfortable family home.
