A prefab on wheels? That's right...it started in 2005 when Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects ("OSKA") and lead architect Tom Kundig built the Delta Shelter. The Delta Shelter is a 20' x 20', 1,000 square-foot weekend cabin that was constructed in Mazama, Washington (pictures on the next page). Not surprisingly, the owners also wanted something for thier guests...and as a result, the rolling hut was born!
OSKA is currently in the process of building 6 of these rolling huts that can be pushed, wheeled, moved, dragged anywhere the owner wishes. Each single-room hut was designed for the purpose of "drawing an inhabitant's gaze out of the room and towards nature." I like its simplicity and the fact that it is high off the ground. Plus, the fact that you can move these things around...I love the flexibility to change the layout of the huts. Visit OSKA's website here and check out their other projects.
