When looking at this magnificent shelter home I think of a box on stilts. If the owners not around the shelter can be completed shuttered by a large wheel hand crank like you’d find on old ships. Each shutter can be opened and closed simultaneously by this one crank—handy right? The shutters are also quite large, coming in at 10 x 18 foot and also steel.
The footprint of this shelter is relatively small because of its height. The base is 20 x 20 feet and rises three stories. It is located out of Mazama, Washington and was created by the great Olson Kundig Architects.
