Glass Cabin


Reclaimed Glass, Natural Materials and the Reclaimed Prairie on the land entrusted to the grandkids of a sesquicentennial farm was the genesis of the design-build for the off-grid Glass Cabin in Northeastern Iowa. Designed as a family retreat for occasional use when returning to the family farm, the extension of the front façade creates a man-made edge to a clearing in the woods next to the Wapsipinicon River, with “barn” doors sliding open to reveal the northern glass front, closing to provide security when away.
