When you reside in an area as isolated since these homeowners, solitude no longer becomes an issue. This residence is located in the middle of 50 acres of pasture and prairie in Eastern Washington’s Kittitas County. Architects Bosworth Hoedemaker wanted this home. The construction is located flat across the sterile landscape, while windows on the whole front of the house welcome the outside inside.
Just the occasional tree or farmhouse blocks the view of the horizon from this home. The house itself is slightly raised on a shallow incline, allowing for perfectly clear views from the house’s large windowed walls.
The front part of the house is entirely transparent, but is set back from the porch, allowing for a feeling of solitude. The doors leading out to the porch fold accordion-style. This extends the great room to some screened-in space in the summertime. As the sky gets darker, the house begins to shine, becoming visible from far distances.

The interior of the house mainly is composed of one large great room. Windows were decorated by by steep ladders on each side lead to attic spaces. Seats close to the fireplace offer views of the expansive grassland.
The watchtower near the house is outfitted with a below-grade wine cellar and sleeping benches for guests. A paved pathway leads from the entrance of the tower directly to the entry of the house, leading visitors to their beds following an evening in the primary residence.
