So if you like architecture, interior design and beautifully designed houses, you are at the right spot. Check out this week beautiful house and stay tuned for more...
This week we present you the beautiful Chicken Point Cabin.
The Chicken Point Cabin is a project by Olson Kundig Architects, a firm that counts with over 75 employees and works with projects from museums to commercial design, residential designs and interior. 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. ;)
Check out Olson Kundig Architects website for further details about this and other projects. See you next time.
We found this house at ISO50.
