Honey, Would You Mind Opening the Window-Wall?
Chicken Point Cabin is an extraordinary private getaway located on a lake in Northern Idaho. Designed by Tom Kundig of Seattle-based Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects, the cabin’s big window-wall (30 feet by 20 feet) opens the entire living space to the forest and lake. According to the architects, "materials are low maintenance—concrete block, steel, concrete floors and plywood—in keeping with the notion of a cabin, and left unfinished to naturally age and acquire a patina that fits in with the natural setting." I'm guessing it took a long time for the owners to get over the novelty of opening and closing the grand window-wall.
