A Modern Cabin in Washington Is a Floating Oasis on the Water

Designed by Jim Olson of Olson Kundig as an oasis on the water, the Water Cabin is a 1,580-square-foot retreat with 180-degree views. The floating home resides on Portage Bay in Washington State with western red cedar siding inspired by weathered cabins. The vertical slats, hung irregularly like trees in a forest, will weather over the years yet they’ll require minimal maintenance. A low galvanized steel structure supports oversized roof planes that protect from the elements while enjoying the outdoor spaces. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors open to connect the interior with the exterior deck, thereby expanding the usable space.
