Olsen Kundig Architects takes a sustainable approach to design, like this lakeside shelter in the woods located in Northern Idaho. The Chicken Point Cabin uses durable and unfinished materials and maintains a strong connection with the outdoors through a large, louvered door.
Winner of numerous deign awards, the Chicken Point Cabin is lauded for its use of large windows and large doorway to the outside. The large window-wall, measuring 30 feet by 20 feet, opens the entire living space to the lake. The low maintenance materials, concrete block, steel, concrete and plywood will last for many years to come and are left unfinished to maintain a stronger connection with the natural setting.
