Montana Modern Prefab Cabin
Submitted by: Intrinsik Architecture Inc.
Designer's Description: The cabin's remote location, extreme snow demands, wildlife interaction and the desire to keep all trees on site intact, controlled the design and logistics of construction. With a high concentration of bears, wolves, and other wildlife, the site presented a unique design challenge. The cabin needed to open-up to the outdoor environment, while maintaining the ability to be securely sheltered. The resulting design acts as an armadillo shell as all openings are equipped with rolling shutters, pivoting screen walls, or sliding doors to protect it from the elements and curious wildlife.
