Olson Kundig Architects - Outpost

I spent a few years of my childhood in Idaho, and I've grown to admire the very rugged beauty of the landscape. Olson Kundig Architects completed the Outpost in 2007, a residence and an artist's studio. Located in the desert landscape of central Idaho, the concrete exterior provides a backdrop for the browns, yellows and reds of the desert. The interior was designed to bring the sweeping panoramas of the outside in.

  1. That is just gorgeous. Can't think of any other words to describe it... maybe an ideal dream.
