A student group from the University of Idaho shared with us their proposal, titled ‘Coeur d ‘Alene After the Reign,’ for the Living City 2035 Challenge competition which won the ‘Can Do It’ Award (third place). Their proposal endeavors to imagine the impact of even a modest increase in the cost of fuel and the repercussions it might have on our built environment and the way we live within it. More images and their description after the break.
Located on a horse ranch in Sun Valley, Idaho, this simple pool pavilion appears to float in a natural clearing along the Big Wood River. The structure takes advantage of views of the aspen and cottonwood forest, a picturesque nearby horse pasture and the Saddle Mountains in the distance. While designed to function primarily as a pool house, the structure can also function as a guesthouse.
Located on a hillside property overlooking Hayden Lake, the Henry Point project is a 830 sqf loft addition and intensive reprogramming of an existing lake cabin in northern Idaho. The project connects visitors of family and friends to the surrounding landscape through a series of decks and operable facades that create large indoor/outdoor gathering spaces as well as two independent living areas.
