Exquisite Modern Residence with Original Architecture Details:Chicken Point Cabin

Chicken Point Cabin. is a remarkable modern residence designed by Olson Kundig Architects and located in Northern Idaho, USA. According to the architects, 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 method used to open the window consists of an intriguing pulley system, absolutely fascinating to watch in action. This leads to the whole house being open towards the stunning surrounding views.

The interior design is impeccable and highly contemporary:  Strong blocks of color help to define space and direct the eye. Texture in furnishings provides a soft but strong counterpoint to the hard, raw material palette. Custom tables using plywood and polyurethane create a direct connection to the architecture while providing durability and function. Some of the unique interior features include the custom continuous steel pipe fireplace, the wood slab work surface supported by a truck suspension spring, and the custom stainless steel bathroom sink.
