Text description provided by the architects. 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. The cabin’s big window-wall (23’ tall x 18’ wide) opens the entire living space to the forest and lake.

The design concept is composed of basically three parts: a concrete block box with a plywood insert and a 4-foot diameter steel fireplace (the bong).  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.  Open interior spaces are intended to be a seamless extension to the natural setting. A 19-foot tall steel entry door can accommodate long skis. The cabin sleeps ten.
