The Delta Shelter, designed by Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects, is a weekend cabin made of steel, that can be completely shuttered when the owner is away.

This 1,000 square-foot weekend cabin, basically a steel box on stilts, can be completely shuttered when the owner is away. Situated near a river in a floodplain, the 20’ x 20’ square footprint rises three stories and is topped by the living room/kitchen. Large, 10’ x 18’ steel shutters can be closed simultaneously using a hand crank.
