Building A – The Gateway Building – Upstairs Suite
Intrinsic Design is a small building design studio that aims to create quality custom homes suited to the rugged environment of the Methow Valley. Buildings in the Methow need to be able to handle hot summers with the threat of wildfire and cold winters with heavy snowfall. They should provide the occupants with comfort while taking steps to walk lightly on the landscape and on the environment. We seek to incorporate energy saving technologies and site specific fire protection. Helping clients create environmentally conscious homes is a priority.
Jeremy Newman moved to the Methow in 2000 with his creative partner Allison Ciancibelli. Life in the Methow started in a yurt and together they launched a successful glass blowing studio, Twisp River Glass, from the old hay barn on the property. More than a decade of showing their glass in galleries nationwide provided them the opportunity to stretch their creative capability to the limit. Their glass sculpture are a part of the collections of the Newark Art Museum, corporations and private collections globally.
