Exterior view of the cabin
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.
Mechanism of the huge window
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 cabin sleeps ten.
