Cabaña Doe Bay is a delightful small crib (just 97 square meters !) designed by Heliotrope Architects on a limited budget and located in Orcas Island, Washington. Here is the story behind the project from the developers: “Our clients have been traveling regularly to Doe Bay Resort on Orcas Island for two decades. Now with two young children they have formalized their affection for the place by purchasing property located a short walk from the resort. We were challenged to design a modest cabin in size and cost (but not in character) that captures the spirit of this place while reflecting the Japanese and Chinese heritage of the owners. Our design solution combines simplicity and economy through the employment of a prefabricated structural panel system (“SIPS”) and the simple form of a box. Features of the home include an extremely energy efficient envelope, a garden roof and 19ft high by 22ft wide window-wall with unobstructed views down Rosario Strait“. Is this not the type of design that makes you question having a large home? [Photography Benjamin Benschnieder]
