Situated in the woods of Puget Sound, the Scavenger Studio is a minimalist hideaway. Co-developed by Olson Kundig and Les Eerkes, the simple form is clad in a mix of charred plywood and painted HardiePanel, and sits on a six-footed foundation with large overhangs for protection from the elements. The kitchen and living area occupy the bottom of the double-height interior, while a steel staircase gives access to a window-lined sleeping loft. True to its name, it was built using as many scavenged materials as possible, including everything from plants to the kitchen cabinets, the latter saved from a house the contractor was demolishing.
