Olson Kundig’s Cabin In Northern Idaho Would Sit Pretty On A Gulf Island Shore

chickenpointcabin_architecture_004

(via) We’re digging the inside and out of this “cabin” that looks out over a lake in Northern Idaho. Imagined and executed by Seattle architects Olson Kundig, the beautiful, mostly open plan building relies on concrete, plywood, steel, and glass to express its different zones, including a living area that appears to be anchored by a towering cylindrical fireplace. Though not huge in terms of square footage, it nevertheless looks like it was paired with the grandeur of its immediate environment (check out the height of the door in the second to last frame below!). We’d happily take ours up from the beach on one of the southern Gulf Islands, preferably Galiano.

Dreaming of This Rural Washington State Retreat for a Clearing on Galiano Island

The house is wrapped in Western Red Cedar and features an office, an in/out fireplace, high ceilings and lots of windows.

We Want This Swedish Mountainside ‘Lofthuset’ to Overlook all of Squamish

They're making four of these beauties for a mountainside in Sweden. Surely they could make a fifth for Squamish...

Imagining This Awesome Treehouse Near Beijing As A Secret North Shore Hideout

The main space - floored with a tatami mat - is for living/sleeping, while the other is used as a washroom. It's tiny (all told under 100 sqft), but we reckon it's enough to provide the one or two people within (anymore would be ridiculous) with the escape they desire. We'd take ours in the quiet cool of the North Shore's Lynn Valley, permits be damned.

Feasting Hut In The Scottish Wilds Would Suit The Desolate Okanagan Highlands

All it took was one lousy 48 hour heatwave and we're already pining for the wintry windswept wilds of the middle of nowhere!
