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 cabinâ€™s big window-wall (30 feet by 20 feet) opens the entire living space to the forest and lake. Materials are low maintenanceâ€”concrete block, steel, concrete floors and plywoodâ€”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. 😉
We found this house at ISO50.
