Sneeoosh Cabin by Zeroplus Architects - “Like a rabbit warming itself in the sun, the Sneeoosh cabin is the underbrush at the waters edge near Deception Pass on the Swinomish Indian Reserve. The dynamic quality of the surrounding landscape becomes integral to daily rituals.
With its glass enclosure, the main living space is exposed to both the forest and larger views of the sound, Hope Island, Whidbey Island and the Olympic Mountains beyond. The upper floor, tucked beneath the overscaled protective roof, is highly insular and protective by contrast and houses private sleeping spaces…”
The exposed structural and roofing features are peculiar here but Zeroplus does a great job of integrating the cabin into the environment with transparency and warm wood tones. I’m looking forward to seeing more of these nature retreats as they continue to emerge in the Northwest.
