Vashon Island Cabin by Vandeventer + Carlander Architects

October 14, 2009 By: archinhome Category: Beach House Design, minimalist house design

Vashon Island Cabin by Vandeventer + Carlander Architects. This Project consist of the remodel of an existing one story cabin with a daylight basement. Some additional floor area is needed to recognize. The idea developed to insert a wood box resting on the existing floor and cantilever over the existing basement walls, thus not affecting the existing drain field.

The wooden box contains master bedroom, bath and kitchen. The exterior form and materials of the box are continued to the interior, while clerestory windows separate the box from the new shed roof above. Thermally the broken aluminum curtain walls is used for the extensive glazing of the main floor living spaces. An existing masonry fireplace and wall on the north side of the cabin are the only elements preserved at this floor from the existing cabin.

Large sliding doors open onto a rebuilt wood deck to the west and allow for easy movement from the interior for entertaining. The daylight basement has been developed into two bedroom, bath and TV area.
