Cabin outdoor living room

Honorable mention: Indoor-outdoor living

Project: Sheldon Gatehouse, Cle Elum, WA

What we love: Who among us hasn’t dreamed of an idyllic cabin in the woods? Bohlin Cywinski Jackson has fulfilled that fantasy for the owner of this rustic-meets-modern two-bedroom getaway sited to maximize the sylvan surroundings, a two-hour drive from Seattle.

Indoor and outdoor rooms, linked by a “boardwalk,” frame gorgeous vistas of the Wenatchee National Forest from multiple angles.

Jurors also appreciated that the buildings have strong visual impact yet occupy a minimal footprint on the land.

Design:  Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, Seattle office (206/256-0862)
