Salmela architect

I had the pleasure of sitting down with architect David Salmela and discussing some design ideas for the cabin.  The cabin he designed with the Saganaga site in mind is beautiful, elegant and very much characteristic of his modern aesthetic.  The footprint is small, 18’x20′, but cantilevers out over the foundation walls that double as the garage.  Everything is designed to take advantage of the views and build as vertical as possible.  The living space is at the very top.  I appreciated the conversations we had about design and I gained a lot of insight into some of the things I’ll need to keep in mind moving forward.  Here is a picture of the scale model he built of his cabin design:
