Chicken Point Cabin in Idaho

The Chicken Point Cabin is a project by Olson Kundig Architects. The idea behind the Chicken Point Cabin was to create a little box with a big window that opens and integrates with its surroundings, taken advantage of the landscape. The cabin’s big window-wall (30 feet by 20 feet) 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 setting.

This place is really cool! It is simple, contemporary and really beautiful. The enormous window, concrete/wood/glass combination and wide spaces created a cozy and functional house. If I would live in a house like this? Certainly. 😉
