Being a writer as a living can be hard, especially if that person works from home, but the False Bay Writer’s Cabin provides an easy solution to avoiding worldly distractions; it shuts up like a cardboard box. What at first appears to be four wooden decks resting on the grass outside are actually large walls that raise up like a drawbridge to cover the floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the stunning landscape.

Designed by Olson Kundig Architects, the False Bay Writer’s Cabin falls into their signature style of contemporary boxy shapes with tons of windows. Located on San Juan Island in Washington State, this cabin was made as a retreat for writers, hence its name, as well as a guest cottage for vacationers.
