A Home with an Ingenious Addition: “Vashon Cabin” in USA

This interesting house plan called “Vashon Cabin” belongs to Vandeventer + Carlander Architects and is located in Vashon Island, Washington, USA. The challenge was to turn around the looks and the functionality of an existing one level cabin. Due to serious building restrictions, the architects had to come up with a viable solution that would increase the space of the residence, without changing the cabin’s lot coverage. The result: an ingenious addition in the shape of a wooden box, which was “attached” to the main structure. Intriguing enough, the auxiliary project includes a master bedroom, a bathroom and the kitchen. But what we like most about the unusual “box” is the fact that the architects managed to blend it with the “mother” structure by taking an original and clever approach. -via Arch Daily
