olgga architectes: the flake house

the flake house by olgga architects is a nomadic home that from certain angles,
looks like a stack of logs. the transportable two-piece log cabin is a road ready dwelling
that looks as if it has been broken right down the middle. the unrefined exterior which
fits well in the natural environment is a complete contrast to the smooth,
sleek modern lines of the house’s interior.
