Salishan Spit Retreat / Travers/Johnston Architects


In the early 1970s, employees of Travers/Johnston Architects in Portland brainstormed the design of a communal retreat on a spit of land that divides Siletz Bay from the Pacific Ocean. To satisfy sleeping quarters for several families at a time, architect Ron Travers drew an octagon for the main lodge area. Nearby are three detached cabins that are shaped like hexagons and form a circle. Inside the circle is a central courtyard with a sunken fire pit, all protected from coastal winds by glass partitions wedged between the cabins. Needless to say, when it was completed, the compound known as the Salishan Spit Retreat got attention. Located at 399 Salishan Drive, it’s listed for $799,000 — via Curbed
