Northern Light Cabin by Rehkamp Larson Architects

Northern Light Cabin

Jean Rehkamp Larson Architects have designed Northern Light Cabin, a vacation home located in Minnesota, US.

Project description: At first glance, this is the quintessential Northern Minnesota log cabin; its classic story and a half form looks as though it was linked to smaller stone structures at some point in time.

Northern Light Cabin 1

There’s no question you are “at the cabin,” and finishes used throughout add an unassuming layer of sophistication. The stone exterior walls continue through the entry and mudroom, creating a durable backdrop for wet towels in the summer and snow gear in the winter. Lime-washed wood walls and ceilings give the interior a rich patina, and a birch bark ceiling warms the den. Concrete hex tiles spanning from mudroom to kitchen and dining room combine a durable, humble material with a refined shape and finish.

A carved stone drinking fountain inset at the back stoop creates the perfect pit stop for grandkids. In the timber frame living room, a dramatic stone fireplace is balanced by a stone-clad game nook, and a large wall of windows frames long views of the lake. This is a house with an assembly of intimate spaces, each with a perfect dose of cabin charm.
