architecture :: modern industrial look for a wilderness cabin

On a quiet lake in Northern Idaho, the clanging sound of glass and steel overhead doors echoes through the still, pristine forest. This small vacation home is where industrial modernism and primitive wilderness happily coexist. Chicken Point Cabin, designed by Tom Kundig of Olson Sundberg Allen Architects is that of a lakeside shelter in the woods—a little box with a big window that opens to the surrounding landscape. The big window-wall is 30 feet by 20 feet and opens the entire living space to the forest and lake. Materials are low maintenance—concrete block, steel, concrete floors and plywood—in keeping with the notion of a cabin, and left unfinished to naturally age and acquire a patina that fits in with the natural wilderness setting.
