Coeur D’Alene Residence on Lake Coeur D’Alene

Photo: Shaun Cammack
The goal of the project was to create a modern log cabin on Coeur D’Alene Lake in North Idaho. Uptic Studios considered the combined occupancy of two families, providing separate spaces for privacy and common rooms that bring everyone together comfortably under one roof. The resulting 3,000-square-foot space nestles into the site overlooking the lake. A delicate balance of natural materials and custom amenities fill the interior spaces with stunning views of the lake from almost every angle.
The whole project was featured in Jan/Feb issue of Design Bureau Magazine.

Love this installation but I do not see a bottom track at the window? - The counter top seems to extend out in one piece. without a visible track/ horizontal frame at the bottom of the window ..so I was wondering how this works. Awesome idea just curious about the details

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The window also acts as a serving station and bar area, allowing guests on the large ipe wood deck to engage with those in the kitchen.
Another option for smaller window openings is a standard casement window. Choose one that opens up completely to lie flat against the house wall for safety’s sake.
12. Take advantage of a pass-through window. Have a window on your porch or deck that leads into the kitchen? Count your lucky stars — you just found the perfect spot to create a party pass-through, ideal for handing out plates of appetizers or playing bartender.Brilliant Idea: The Kitchen Pass-Through Window
