The River Box cabin features a striking living-dining-kitchen space on the upper level perched above a master suite on the lower level. This living arrangement is well-suited at the edges of rivers and lakes or other sites where taking advantage of views from a higher vantage point is of utmost importance. This house is also adaptable to steep slopes with the main entry occurring at the upper level.
Cantilevering the main floor of the house above a smaller floor below minimizes the building’s footprint and overall impact on the land. This overhang, along with the wide butterfly roof, provides deep shade in the summer and a large catchment area for rainwater harvesting in the wetter months.
