In honor of #EarthDay , we’re highlighting environmentally-conscious homes like this net-zero “City Cabin” in Seattle. When Jim Olson, co-founder of the award-winning architecture studio Olson Kundig, was asked by his longtime friend and neighbor to design her new home, he had a ready source of inspiration to draw from: his recently expanded Cabin in Longbranch. The client loved Jim’s cabin in Puget Sound—a project he designed and built at age 18 and modified throughout the years—and asked him to not only model her home after it, but to also channel the wild, forested feel. “The client wanted to feel like she was living in the wilderness when, in fact, her home is on a regular-size urban neighborhood lot,” Jim notes. To see how @olsonkundig transformed the city infill lot into a nature-immersed retreat, check out the link in bio.
