Cabin at Longbranch in Washington by Olson Kundig

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Jim Olson’s reverence for nature and admiration of the site’s beauty is expressed in the design of this project located on Puget Sound and nestled amidst the towering fir trees of an ancient forest. What began as a 14-foot-square bunk house built in 1959 has morphed through subsequent remodels in 1981, 1997, 2003 and 2014 into a modest yet highly livable weekend retreat. Each successive addition and remodel has reused and integrated the previous structure rather than erasing it to reveal the cabin’s architectural history.

Viking seaside summer cabin in Normandy, France by Freaks architecture

Article source: Freaks architecture

The project is located on the west coast of France, in the Cotentin region, where came waves of vikings from the 9th century.

FREAKS has been commissioned to refurbish a preexisting concrete fishing shack built in the 50’s on a rock, on the beach, facing the sea. Its dimensions and ratio are exactly the same as Henry David Thoreau’s log cabin in Walden, 3 meters per 4, 12m2.

Chicken Point Cabin in Idaho by Olson Kundig

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

The owners of Chicken Point Cabin and their two young children bought the waterfront property—located half an hour from their house in northern Idaho—in order to build a lakeside cabin. Their intent was to be able to use the house year-round, but especially during the summer, when the local weather can get oppressively hot. Their only directive to Tom was simple: make the house as open to the water as possible. Tom’s response to this challenge was as direct as the request: a large pivoting picture window on the waterside that literally opens up to the landscape. “Little house, big window,” in Tom’s words.

Delta Shelter in Washington, by Olson Kundig

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

Delta Shelter – a 1,000 square-foot cabin – is essentially a steel-clad box on stilts that can be completely shuttered when the owner is away. The 200 square-foot footprint of the house rises above a 40-acre, 100-year flood plain adjacent to the Methow River. The verticality, coloring and raw nature of the materials used for construction directly respond to the wildness of the setting. The owner sought a compact, easy to maintain, virtually indestructible building to house himself and his friends for fun and adventure in the mountains. With an exterior of steel, the house is virtually indestructible.

Cabin in Chamonix, France by Pierre Marchand Architectes

Friday, May 19th, 2017

Article source: Pierre Marchand Architectes

At the request of long time clients, we designed and supervised the construction of a new cabin in the Chamonix valley.

The site is located within a residential compound built in the 50’s. A cabin dating from the original master plan was on the lot.

The location benefits from sweeping and stunning views over the Mont Blanc skyline. This majestic view was the starting point of the design.

False Bay Writer’s Cabin in Washington by Olson Kundig

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Article source: Olson Kundig

This five-hundred-square-foot cabin serves as a private writer’s retreat and guest cottage. The owners asked for a space that felt connected to its island setting—the mild climate, scenic views, and proximity to wildlife. At the same time, they needed a structure that could be easily secured when not in use.
