The Sol Duc Cabin in Seattle, Washington

Jun 6, 2016

Category: Living

Built for a couple that loves to get away on weekend fly fishing trips, the Sol Duc Cabin in Washington was designed by the talented team at Olson Kundig Architects.

The weekend retreat needed to serve several needs for the owner. First of all,  it needed to be virtually indestructible, seeing that the property is uninhabited for several weeks at any given time. Kundig built a protective steel exterior that slides across all of the windows, and can be easily controlled by the residents using a mechanically driven wheel. It also needed to be able to withstand the frequent flooding caused by the local river, and to do this the designers built the structure on elevated stilts. The multi-level interior features timber panels lining the floor, walls and even ceiling. There’s a kitchen on the main floor along with a wash room, while a bedroom loft is located upstairs. All in all, the space is 30 square meters, and features everything one needs to thrive in the great outdoors. A river-facing balcony offers up some nice outdoor social space, while a cantilevered roof provides some nice protection from the harsh sun light. This is definitely a fisherman’s dream.
