Lopez Island Cabin (7pics)

The Lopez Island Cabin is a 1,300 sq foot 'cabin' located on a wooded bluff above Puget Sound and is far from 'roughing it'.... Designed by Stuart Silk Architects, this contemporary retreat will bring you closer to nature with all the modern/contemporary commodities in mind...  Check out incredible photos of it below:  

As with most true cabins, there are few rooms: a living area/kitchen, two modest bedrooms and two small bathrooms. The project utilizes simple materials and an efficient plan to create a striking, sculptural form.The material selections and construction methods emphasize economy, low maintenance, and energy conservation.  Slab-on-grade construction is used for the interior flooring and adjacent terraces, simplifying construction and minimizing the use of raw materials. Corrugated metal siding and locally-sourced ground face concrete block (used in the interior spaces as well as the exterior) are durable, economical and true to the cabin aesthetic. Site disturbance is strictly localized, allowing for only minor construction grading that follows the natural contours of the site and preserves natural vegetation.
