snowboarding cabin

With, quite frankly, this bloody awful weather we’ve been keeping warm indoors and following the winter Olympics. We particularly loved the snowboarding so it seemed timely to post this cabin envy. Vancouver architects Scott and Scott built this as their own snowboarding cabin and for five months of the year it is reached via a gravel track, the rest of the time it’s accessible on a sledge! I love the way the cedar exterior has worn to a colour that blends with its snowy surroundings.

“The cabin was constructed out of a desire to directly design and build as a singular act, to work with the freedom one experiences when snowboarding, and in a manner which is centered in the adventure and not bound heavily in pre-determination,”                           (Scott & Scott Dezeen magazine)
