Coeur D’Alene Residence on Lake Coeur D’Alene contemporary-deck
 

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.

Yes! This is actually a storefront door system, and depending on the manufacturer there are some in-swing systems as well.

I really need to know this also. We have a "temporary NEW window" until I can figure out how to do this. I really like how functional it looks.

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

so if we can't have sliding doors or bigger type doors that open from the kitchen to the deck and backyard, then i'd love to have a big window like this that connects the inside to the outside. and like the island where you would have stools for seating while somebody is cooking, we can have the same at this window counter top.
