Built over an&nbsp;existing foundation, the new building is just over 20 ft square. Early&nbsp;design discussions focused on creating a compact, modern structure that&nbsp;was both simple and efficient. Visitors approach the site from the&nbsp;south, a thin canopy marks the entry and frames views of the Canal&nbsp;below. Taut oxidized black cedar and blackened cement infill panels clad&nbsp;the exterior while lightly painted panels and soft pine plywood warm&nbsp;and brighten the interior. The resulting project hopes to capture the&nbsp;essence of the modern cabin &ndash; small in size but much larger than its&nbsp;boundaries.</p>
