🇺🇸 Rural Washington 🇺🇸

What better opportunity for an architect to express his vision and explore his skills than to build his own house. That’s exactly what Jim Olson’s cabin, nestled amidst fir and cedar trees and overlooking Puget Sound in rural Washington State, is all about: his desire “to be part of nature and observe nature”. But more than that, built incrementally in the course of six decades, it’s also an architectural palimpsest that celebrates the structure's history and evolution.

What began in 1959 as a twenty square meter bunkhouse near the small community of Longbranch, conceived by 18 year-old Olsen as a place “to be in the woods” and built on a budget of five hundred dollars, the cabin has evolved through a series of remodels in 1981, 1997, 2003 and 2014 - through the Seattle-based architectural studio Olson Kundig that Olson co-founded in the 50s - into a 240 square meter forest retreat that includes a master bedroom and two guestrooms.
