A beautiful box in the woods


File this under amazing architecture I'd love to have one day.

The exterior, interior & concept of the house is a work of art. A project by Olson Kundig Architects named "Chicken Point Cabin" named after the location in northern Idaho, 2002.


"The idea for the cabin is that of a lakeside shelter in the woods—a little box with a big window that opens to the surrounding 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. The cabin sleeps ten."
