Rolling Huts - Olson Kundig Architects

Posted Wednesday, December 22, 2010 by SixSevenEightNine in Labels:

Only 4 hours from Seattle, these minimalistic rolling huts are in Washington’s Methow Valley. Designed by local Olson Kundig Architects to similate Thoreau’s simple cabin in the woods; that structures take second place to nature.

"Responding to the owner’s need for space to house visiting friends and family, the Rolling Huts are several steps above camping, while remaining low-tech and low-impact in their design. The huts sit lightly on the site, a flood plain meadow in an alpine river valley. The owner purchased the site, formerly a RV campground, with the aim of allowing the landscape return to its natural state. The wheels lift the structures above the meadow, providing an unobstructed view into nature and the prospect of the surrounding mountains. "
