Pole Pass Retreat

2015

Designed as a year-round gathering space for friends and family, this retreat is tucked into a densely wooded shoreline site with amazing views. The cabin is a structural steel and timber hybrid. Nine-foot-tall operable glass walls on adjacent faces of the building can slide away to open the kitchen and living areas to the large deck, which is covered by a green roof. The second story space cantilevers over the lower level, creating a covered parking area. PCS also provided structural engineering support for some architectural details, such as the countertop that cantilevers almost 12 feet from the kitchen out into the covered deck area.
