Cave B Inn and Cliffehouses

Location Grant County, Washington
Design Principal Tom Kundig
Principal Kirsten R. Murray

In a multi-phase project, Olson Kundig designed the Cave B Inn, Lodge and 15 guesthouses at Sagecliffe Winery. Poised 900 feet above the Columbia River, the buildings are surrounded by estate vineyards and orchards. The design team worked closely with the client to create a language of architectural forms and materials that drew from the natural landscape of Central Washington.

The design seeks to engage history through a respectful use of natural materials, forms sympathetic to the natural setting and environmentally conscious design. Building placement and site planning were informed by topographical and geological conditions, particularly the basalt cliffs, rocky outcroppings and talus. Stone for the buildings was harvested on site and cast into concrete forms.
