The home hovers above the ground on concrete bases, so as not to intrude too heavily on the natural landscape. Note the red hatch door from the loft bedroom that can be lowered.
The home features materials, cabinetry, and plants salvaged from homes slated to be demolished.
The home's minimalist construction includes a mix of unfinished and charred plywood to form a simple two-story volume with a slightly sloping roof and cantilevered bedroom loft with clerestory windows made from polycarbonate panels.
Hard shell, soft core. The industrial exterior shell wraps up and over the warm interior of the great room.
A large window wall folds in to create a spacious deck that wraps up and over to become the roof and overhang of the home.
The stainless steel column is set outboard of the envelope to allow for a corner opening wall system.
The taller mass holds the sleeping spaces, while the living and gathering spaces are located in the lower elements.
In order to take advantage of the sun, the outdoor patio, opening wall system, and lawn were located on the southern side of the residence.

Anna Hoover, founder of the non-profit First Light Alaska, sought a "thought refuge, a room with a view to sit and contemplate future projects and reflect on recent travels and interactions, plenty of ‘headspace’—tall ceilings—and the ability to host other artists for studio time," she says. A longtime resident of the Pacific Northwest, Hoover was familiar with the work of Olson Kundig and contacted the Seattle-based firm to design her abode.
Wood from the property’s felled trees was incorporated into every room in the 3,000-square-foot house.

San Francisco firm Lundberg Design built this cabin out of reclaimed materials, including the exterior redwood, which has aged into an elegant, ashen gray. In a past life, the pool acted as a water tank for livestock.
