Washington State Cabin Leaves Almost No Footprint
Olson Kundig Architects has become well-known for their gorgeous cabins, as we’ve shown you before (take a look at this Washington writer’s retreat). Their latest offering is a 350 square foot Washington state cabin which leaves only the tiniest of footprints on nature.
The fishing cabin on the Olympia Peninsula had many of its elements constructed off-site before being assembled on location so that heavy equipment would not have to be brought into the forest.
Salvaged materials were used wherever possible in the eco-friendly cabin, with even the lofted bedroom floor being made from them. The cabin sits on stilts to protect it from flooding from a nearby river.
When the fishing trip is over, the sustainable cabin can be shuttered up like a barn to protect it from the elements and curious creatures. To learn more about this Washington cabin, visit Olson Kundig Architects.
