A tiny 191-square-foot cabin with one room and an outdoor shower is Seattle-based architect Tom Kundig’s ode to the wild woods of the Pacific Northwest.
On a site previously occupied by another cabin, Seattle-based Olson Kundig Architects designed a tiny rustic retreat with a facade sheathed in metal to stand up to the weather. Indoors is another story: the walls are wrapped in cedar panels.
Above: Designed to look like an intimate, protected retreat against a wilderness backdrop, the cabin has a wood-burning stove indoors (and a built-in spot to stack logs on the porch).
Above: An unfinished steel panel slides manually over the cabin windows, securing the building when the owners are away.
Above: The original lettering on the weathered steel panel is a memento from its former life.
Above: Cedar panels cover the floor and ceiling of the cabin.
Above: Living in one room: a tiny kitchen, a wood-burning stove, and an exposed toilet.
Above: A propane tank provides hot water for the outdoor shower and simple wood benches double as deck furniture.
