Snohomish Pyramid House / David Turner


If you’re looking for a groovy cabin retreat, you’d be hard-pressed to find one more, shall we say, atmospheric than this unusual creation in Snohomish, Washington. Designed by architect David Turner in 1976, the three-bedroom home is located on a bluff 48 km north-east of Seattle, surrounded by valley and river views.

Sitting on a woodsy six-acre property, the 170-square-metre abode comprises two heavily glazed pyramids connected by a matching pyramid-esque atrium/greenhouse. Bring your imagination, your contractor and/or roll up your sleeves, the listing urges. Indeed, the place could use some updates, notably where the shingle siding and kitchen are concerned. But with a huge fireplace surrounded by snug seating and plenty of full-height windows to admire nature from inside, this hand crafted abode seems like a cool place to hunker down — via Curbed
