This gorgeous and cozy cabin on Flathead Lake is located in Polson, Montana and designed by Andersson Wise Architects. From the architects: â€œLocals call the granite and shale cliff overlooking Montanaâ€™s Flathead Lake â€œThe Matterhornâ€. It is a place to observe the natural world: the lake, the surrounding ponderosa pine forest, and especially the eagles and ospreys that nest nearby. Together, the water, cliff, and trees form a classic picture of the expansive American West, and it is clear why Montana is still known as North Americaâ€™s great destination.
Within this context, the cabinâ€™s diaphanous volume is set on six steel piers that are delicately anchored to concrete blocks set into the slope. Screened walls enclose a living area, which has an open floor plan and wood slat floors that extend outside. Amenities are sparse but not neglected: a small kitchen, bathroom, and shower allow guests an overnight stay. The cabin has no heating or cooling system and running water is pumped from the lake below.â€ Via
