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.
