Globally, priorities are changing, many big city dwellers are ready to live elsewhere, leaving behind the pace of the urban concrete jungle, its rising costs, excessive tax structures, maddening traffic and street crime.
Enter stage right, the new world of biophilic design and Eagle Cliff Lodge on the Columbia River in America’s Pacific Northwest. The lodge, a private residence, is a fine example of the biophilic school of thought connecting the architectural living and working space and nature in the grandest of ways.
Resting on a rock cliff cloaked in a lush green forest 210 ft above sea level with a panoramic view of the grand Columbia River, the lodge in its natural setting alone is magnificent to behold. Additionally, the lodge’s structure and its interior celebrates the natural elements of wood, stone, fire and water. The full-length walls of windows are open to natural light and spectacular views, in which to find a diamond in the raw. A diamond that more than satisfies the requirements and goals to inspire the positive mental, emotional, and physical health and wellbeing of those in residence and those who visit.
