You don’t often associate cutting edge design with a cabin in Idaho, but the Chicken Point Cabin by Olson Kundig Architects is a truly exceptional modern country house with breathtaking views of the lake. Rustic elements meet industrial design in this modern cabin crafted of metal, glass, plywood and concrete.
The architects have created a functional space that minimizes waste with fresh interior design that’s relaxed and cozy.
The focal point is a 20′ x 30′ window wall overlooking the lake that can be opened with an ingenious hand-crank wheel so you can step directly from the living room into the wilderness. Other striking features include interior sliding doors that operate like barn doors but have a sleek, modern vibe and a wonderful fireplace crafted from a metal silo. It’s a surprising twist on industrial design that fits seamlessly into its natural surroundings.
