A Lodge With Turn Over Steel Door
This building that designed by Olson Kundig Architects is located in a rural area of Northern Idaho. The lodge has simple shape but steel turn over door with 30 feet by 20 feet make another extraordinary ambience. The door that has maximum turn over make the interior open towards to the entire living space to the forest and lake. From the entry door it is directly to the warm living room with a 4-foot diameter steel fireplace (the bong). Materials are low maintenance—concrete block, steel, concrete floors and plywood—in keeping with the notion of a lodge, and left unfinished to naturally age and acquire a patina that fits in with the natural setting.
