Located on a flood plain of the Potlatch River, two adjacent cantilevered metal building belong to the same owner, who want a live-work space for their winery and vineyard.
Architects: Paul Hirzel
Location: Potlatch River, Idaho, USA

Supported by a 186 foot Howe truss on 4 piers above the “500 year flood event” elevation, the “Bridge Structure” is the main live space with a 32-foot-long cantilever extending over the river.
While the “Lookout Structure” perched on a narrow basalt cliff overlooking a spawning pool on the river, additional guest facilities, a small event space, storage, and studio are in the Lookout Structure.
