Materials concrete block low-maintenance, steel, concrete floors and plywood-line with the idea of the cabin, and left unfinished natural patina of age and get matched with the natural setting.
Interiors by Olson Kundig Architects. The use of color and texture are important in the interior of this casual family cabin. Strong blocks of color help to define space and direct the eye. Texture in furnishings provides a soft but strong counterpoint to the hard, raw material palette. Custom tables using plywood and polyurethane create a direct connection to the architecture while providing durability and function. Some of the unique interior features include the custom continuous steel pipe fireplace, the wood slab work surface supported by a truck suspension spring, and the custom stainless steel bathroom sink.
