This cabin, located along the banks of the Shenandoah River, is mainly used during the Summer months. The cabin’s folding doors open up completely for the Summer months to let the breezes flow through. During the Winter months, when the cabin is not in use, all the windows and doors are folded or slid closed to protect the cabin from harsh weather. This seasonal transformation was a main focus in designing the cabin.
The appearance of floating was also incorporated within the design. The intent was for the structure to protrude out of the earth and have a “floating” deck that cantilevers above the treetops overlooking the river.
The roof folds around the structure, providing a feeling of privacy and intimacy. The roof’s slope opens up toward the river, the intended primary vista.
