Delta Shelter / Olson Kundig Architects

20 Mar

 

 

 

 

Delta Shelter – a 1,000 square-foot cabin – is essentially a steel-clad box on stilts that can be completely shuttered when the owner is away.

 

The 200 square-foot footprint of the Delta Shelter rises above a 40-acre, 100-year flood plain adjacent to the Methow River. The verticality, coloring and raw nature of the materials used for construction directly respond to the wildness of the setting.

 

The owner sought a compact, easy to maintain, virtually indestructible building to house himself and his friends for fun and adventure in the mountains. With an exterior of steel, the Delta Shelter house is virtually indestructible.
