The 2021 AIA NW+PR jury praised the project’s “delicate insertion into the site” and “simple, crisp volume” during the ceremony.
Twenty-one projects received recognition for design excellence at the 2021 AIA Northwest and Pacific Region (NW+PR) Design Awards. Boundary Point Cabin was one of four projects to receive an honor award, the highest recognition given. The jury noted that it was an “exceptional project, with modest materials detailed in a way that made them seem luxurious.”
Located above a lake in British Columbia, Boundary Point Cabin is a gathering place for multiple generations of family to reconnect. Designed to embrace the the sensation of floating in the forest overlooking the lake, the 2,500 square-foot cabin cantilevers over the outcropping and follows the landscape in its wedge-like form. We worked with a talented team on this project, including RAMM Custom Build, Spearhead Timberworks and Blackwell Engineering.
Jurors for this year’s design awards included Tamarah Begay, AIA, AICAE, LEED AP (Indigenous Design Studio + Architecture), Carlos Jimenez (Carlos Jimenez Studio), and Pascale Sablan, FAIA, NOMA, LEED AP (Adjaye Associates). Learn more below.
