THIS CABIN CAN BE SHUTTERED UP WHEN NOT IN USE

…Or If You Just Need To Shut Out From the World

This cabin is every individual’s dream retreat. Located in the small island of San Juan, just a few hours north of Seattle, lies this 500 sq. ft. home away from home. From afar, it looks just like an ordinary cabin. It has floor-to-ceiling glass panels that act as both windows and sliding doors to the surroundings. Inside, the minimalist interiors provide a spacious and polished aesthetic. It has a comfy couch, some bookshelves, and a large desk for some work or two.

What makes this cabin special is that the entire thing can be shuttered out. It has a decking that can be used in storing the cabin. More than this though, it can also be used simply when you feel like you want to be alone, or perhaps if you just want to concentrate more on your work, or relax a bit and take a break from life. Simply put up the decking around the cabin and you will be alone. If you want a breath of fresh air and see some greens and sun, just simply put the decking back down.

The cabin was designed by Seattle architecture firm Olson Kundig, as a refuge to be shuttered when not in use, but these days, refuge means a little something different entirely.
