Leave it to Seattle-based Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects to add some contemporary class to a country cabin. Chicken Point Cabin is a house on a lake in northern Idaho which the architects describe as “a little box with a big window that opens to the surrounding landscape.” The facade of the house is an expansive 30-by-20-ft. window, which winds open with a rustic hand crank – a quirky touch. Constructed of concrete, steel and plywood, are unfinished to lend the cabin an authentic feel. Inside, knotty woods and gritty concrete floors are complemented by bare brick walls and a repurposed pipe-turned-fireplace at the hub of the home. The floor plan is designed around the awe-inspiring window, providing each room a piece of this spectacular view. Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects.
