Cabin retreat in the beautiful Mazama countryside: Delta Shelter

This 1,000 square-foot weekend cabin, is located in the beautiful countryside around Mazama, Washington. The Delta Shelter is basically a steel box on stilts, which can be completely shuttered when the owner is away.

Situated near a river in a floodplain, the 20 x 20 square footprint rises three stories and is topped by the living room/kitchen. Large, 10 x 18 steel shutters can be closed simultaneously using a hand crank. This incredible structure was constructed by Seattle based architecture firm Olson Kundig Architects.
