Designed by Oldson Kundig, this home represents lakeside living at its best. The Chicken Point Cabin is simple and modern, but it has also been designed to remain as open to the water as possible.
The owners of Chicken Point Cabin and their two young children bought the northern Idaho home and wanted to use it year-round, especially during summertime. The designers integrated a large (23’ tall x 18’ wide) pivoting window wall to provide full view and access to the lake and surrounding landscape. It’s a simple feature that can be opened to truly bring the outdoors in.
Simple, low-maintenance materials were used throughout the home — concrete blocks, steel, concrete floors, and plywood. These materials were carefully selected to reinforce the notion of a what a humble rural cabin should be. And, because these materials are largely unfinished, they will naturally age and acquire a patina that will blend in with the natural setting.
