American architecture firm Olson Kundig designed a 450 square-foot artist studio at a remote forested ledge overlooking the water in the San Juan Islands.

The wooden cabin essentially consists of a single room and offers flexible space as a painting studio or guest house. The rear of the building nestles gently into the slope, which is bordered by trees and boulders. This part of the house includes a micro kitchen and bathroom. The front protrudes over the slope. A “magical” window offers inspiring views of the water and the islands behind. The restrained design of the cabin merges perfectly into the forested landscape.

Below you can see a few images of the studio. For those of you who want to see more of Olson Kundig’s architectural work, feel free to visit their website or follow the studio on Instagram.
