Vashon Cabin / Architects Vandeventer + Carlander
This project involves the renovation of an existing cabin story with daylight basement. Given the restrictions on development sites generated from the existing septic field, it is impossible to increase the scope of the cabin there are many.
This constraint, combined with the desire of customers to the complete reorganization and upgrading the main floor space, has led to the decision to demolish the existing structure to the main floor.
Given the program calls for additional floor area, this concept has evolved with the addition of a small, replacing the previous bridge outside. Moreover, it is a wooden box “integration” that extends to the main structure, fit into the structure above the existing floor and the console on the wall of a basement there, and no impact on the existing drain field.
This wooden box contains the main bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. The outer shape and finish of interior areas continues, high window box separate from the roof of a warehouse on the main structure.
Aluminium coated wood walls provide a wide glass window on the main floor. Large sliding doors open to a deck built on the west and the expansion of the outside for entertainment.
Daylight basement has been redesigned to include a family room with two bedrooms and new bathroom and laundry.
