It is generally south-facing. There are, however, large overhangs and lots of shade from evergreen trees. We did an energy analysis to see whether heat gain would be a problem and the owner decided to add a small mini split AC system for the bedrooms in th upper volume. Of course, natural ventilation helps a lot too.

Do you have a picture of the floor plan? How many bedrooms are there?

DeForest Architects
There are two main bedrooms with attached baths, a large multipurpose space with Murphy bed, two sleeping alcoves, and a pull out bed on the screened porch. One of the bedrooms has a loft. We are not able to share floor plans since it was a custom design for a particular client. Thanks for your interest!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Contemporary Cabins in the Woods
This cabin designed by DeForest Architects overlooks Lake Wenatchee in Washington State's Cascade Mountains. The cabin opens itself up to the stunning lake views by incorporating floor-to-ceiling glass. In this view we can see how the building is composed of two volumes that step down the hill and alternate the slopes of their roofs; this allows views to be had from either volume.
