A Boxy Lakeside Cabin By Olson Kundig

Seattle-based architecture firm Olson Kundig designed a concrete box cabin featuring a large window that opens out over the lake at Chicken Point in Northern Idaho. With simplicity in mind, the architects selected low-maintenance, raw-finish materials to create three distinct spaces: a concrete block cube, a plywood section and a steel fireplace. The cabin’s interior is open plan, intended to blend into the nature amongst which it is nestled – a concept at the core of Olson Kundig’s practice, which was founded on the idea that “buildings can serve as a bridge between nature, culture and people, and that inspiring surroundings have a positive effect on people’s lives.”
