Perched on a steep forested ravine and overlooking a protected salmon stream, this low-lying house designed by architect Darrell Epp seems to float in the wilderness. In the sunny frontyard, the distinctive silhouettes of ginkgos and squared-off beeches set the tone. On a lesser scale, mounding lavenders and graphic maiden grasses play against expanses of raw concrete and accents of reclaimed, century-old barn wood. In the back, shaded and sloping down to the stream, a variety of dark green foliages merge into the surroundings. Completed Spring 2013.
