The Seattle-based Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects designed this 1,000 square-foot weekend cabin in the beatiful countryside around Mazama in their home state Washington.

The Delta Shelter, which is basically a steel box on stilts, can be completely shuttered when the owner is away. Situated near a river in a floodplain, the 20’ x 20’ square footprint rises three stories and is topped by the living room/kitchen. Large, 10’ x 18’ steel shutters can be closed simultaneously using a hand crank.

The Seattle-based Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects realised this stunning residence and studio/workshop for making and displaying art. Set in the remote and harsh high desert landscape of Idaho, the complex received this important aspect – a protected “paradise garden” which is separated from the wild landscape by thick concrete walls.

The materials used in the structure, including concrete block, car-decking, and plywood, require little or no maintenance, and are capable of withstanding the extreme weather that characterize the desert’s four seasons.
