Located on a rocky promontory accessible only by boat, this 900 sf project was designed for two artists, and offered a unique chance to create a private retreat defined by the landscape. Sitting on a platform raised above the site, the cabin is actually three separate buildings: one for living and dining, one for a master bedroom, and the third for a guest room.
The three buildings are united by a small terrace. A simple design vocabulary based on rural sheds characterizes the project. The three small buildings are clad in shingles that are the pale gray of the local granite, and feature single-slant roofs. Inside, the cabin walls are pine board-and-batten construction. There is no electricity at the cabin; rooftop solar panels are the sole energy source. The waterfront setting, unpopulated landscape, and arrangement of the cabins make this a restorative retreat for the artists and their guests.
