Text description provided by the architects.

Sited at the rim of the Columbia River Gorge within the existing Sagecliffe Winery hospitality campus, the Cave B Cabins maximize connections to the surrounding natural context. Each cabin features a durable, low-maintenance material palette of steel, concrete and plywood that allows the structure to fade into the rocky landscape of eastern Washington’s high desert.

The single-story, studio cabins are composed on the landscape as a grouping of independent yet complementary buildings, establishing a design model that can be easily replicated to suit future expansion. The cabins are arranged in two staggered rows along a central roadway, oriented in the same direction to preserve privacy between units.

This linear arrangement allows each cabin to enjoy both direct and side views of the rolling, rocky hills, surrounding vineyards and the dramatic river gorge. Cabin interiors prioritize flexibility and efficient use of space, as well as an intuitive circulation flow that culminates in a dedicated exterior patio.
