There’s nothing quite like venturing off to your weekend cabin in the snowy climates for the holiday season, and the team at Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects has designed one of our favorite weekend cabins to date.
The Delta Shelter is a cozy 1,000 square foot cabin residing near the Methow River in Mazama, which is small village in the Methwo Valley located in the eastern part of Washington. The cabin is constructed from steel, and rises high above the ground thanks to the foundation of stilts the steel box rests upon. The entire dwelling can be completely shuttered and closed off when the owner is away ensuring that the home is always protected.
“The cabin is composed of three levels: the lowest level is half carport, half utility/storage room; the middle level consists of the entry, two small bedrooms and bathrooms; the top level is one large space which includes living, dining and cooking areas. Cantilevered steel decks extend from the top and middle levels and provide space for outdoor sleeping and entertaining.”
