River Place / Paul F. Hirzel
From the architect. At the end of a single lane road cut into a hillside, on a dry west-facing slope near Juliaetta, Idaho, the owners wanted to restore a pioneer vineyard (the first known vineyard in the canyon). Preserving the most ideal land for the vineyard, we located two structures – one above a flood plain, the other perched on a narrow basalt cliff overlooking a spawning pool on the Potlatch River. The owner and guest quarters are housed in one structure and the other is used for special events such as wine tasting.
