The Badger Mountain House standing at the feet of the Badger Mountain in Richland, Washington was designed by the First Lamp Architecture and Construction practice with a style influenced by the natural landscape and by the clean lines found in the traditional Japanese architecture.
The main purpose of the project is to offer additional space for the growing family inhabiting the house while also trying to offer the best views of the Columbia River and to create a link with the surrounding landscape through the shape and orientation of the structure.
The house is arranged perpendicular to the slope of the hillside in order to reduce the impact on the site and to provide views toward the north. To the south the house opens to the swimming pool and observation area offering views of the Peak of Badger Mountain.
The design has exposed concrete walls on the ground level with natural cedar on the interior as well as outdoors to create a connection between the two.
