Tom Kundig designed a tiny cabin using indestructible materials like concrete and steel. He fabricated many parts off-site, allowing for quick and inexpensive assembly. The weathered steel used in the cabin blends with the surrounding trees. The cabin sits on stilts to protect against floods, with large windows on all sides. Shutters made of 10-foot-by-18-foot steel sheets can be closed using a handwheel to seal the cabin for the season. It is praised for its ability to blend into the landscape while still showing the hand of man.
