Contemporary A-frame Cabin With A Soaring Ceiling And Huge Windows

No matter how you look at it, this is one of the most exemplary A-frame cabins one can think of. It was designed by Todd Gordon Mather Architect and is located in the Lake Tahoe region, in California. It may not be your typical rustic mountain retreat but you can still definitely see a few key elements scattered around, such as the stone fireplace or the barn doors. Everything has a polished and modern look yet somehow the cabin retains a very warm and cozy character.

Staying true to the A-frame design guidelines, the cabin’s roof extends all the way to the ground

The project entitled Phoenix Rising was completed in 2019. The architects chose a contemporary design approach, giving the cabin a very clean and simple geometry. There are 1,700 square feet of living space in total and although the cabin has a relatively small footprint its interior is surprisingly airy and open. The 34 foot high ceiling and the huge windows definitely have a lot to do with that. Also, the design is not really as simple as the glazed facades would suggest and there’s actually a lot of diversity in this project.
