City Cabin is a house designed by Olson Kundig in 2015 for an avid conservationist dedicated to preserving existing forests. Located in Seattle, United States, the cabin has a total floor area of 2,400ft² (223m²).
Located in one of Seattle’s most established residential areas, City Cabin’s design answers the client’s desire for a private urban retreat. The home’s staggered footprint allows for dense landscaping and garden views. With the goal of net-zero energy use, the home’s design incorporates key sustainability features such as a green roof, photovoltaic panels and an air-to-water heat pump, along with the incorporation of reclaimed materials. The interior palette draws inspiration from the client’s extensive Native American art collection, creating a true Northwest getaway nestled in the heart of the city.
