425 Magazine presents the Resort Home of the Year

Meet the team.

We handpicked an all-star team to design, build, and decorate the ultimate resort home on the shores of Lake Chelan.  Meet the team behind the build.


SkB Architects

SkB Architects is comprised of creative strategic and visual thinkers rooted in the science and art of place-making.

SkB Architects create great people places in the public and private realms.  We believe all markets, at the core, are often striving for places where community can thrive whether it is experienced on the streets of the urban context, inside private companies, shopping, eating, entertaining, living...or through crafting a product perfectly suited to its user's needs.

Our influencers are the natural environment, the urban context, patterns of commerce, user experience and materiality.  Site is important, neighborhood is important, context and regionalism is important.

We are in a constant search of new and fresh interpretations of solutions tied to place and time.


Harkey Construction & Development

Harkey Construction and Development is led by Dave Harkey, a builder in the Chelan Valley for over 22 years with rock solid integrity.  Specializing in custom homes, they are the Lookout's exclusive general contractor.  They take great pride in the details, using excellent quality products and the best craftsmen to produce a first class home every time.  Harkey has completed 28 new homes at the Lookout in the past two years alone and several new starts are underway.  Harkey employs roughly 40-50 craftsmen and other trades at the Lookout nearly every day, with up to a dozen homes at a time under construction for a very discerning clientele.  The Lookout celebrates this strong relationship and looks forward to many more years of partnership.
