Rolling Huts by Olson Kundig Architects

  • Seattle's Olson Kundig Architects are masters of the modern cabin. Whether it's a one-room island retreat or a steel box on stilts, the firm creates fascinating structures surrounded by nature, rustic yet comfy places where we would love to chill. Rolling Huts are another case in point. Designed by Olson Kundig partner Tom Kundig, Rolling Huts add massive steel wheels to the boxy shapes and exposed metal that the firm is known for.

    The Rolling Huts site reclaimed an old RV park on the leeward side of North Cascades National Park in Washington state. The six rentable huts make up a small herd of getaway structures referred to by the owner as "modern alternatives to camping." But with a fridge, Wi-Fi, and microwave this isn't exactly roughing it in the backcountry. And at $135 per night, they are plenty affordable.
