An Artist’s British Columbia Cabin Offers Peace and Perspective

The woodsy retreat by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson has a cantilevered deck that captures panoramic views.

The home is nestled in a stand of cedar, pine, and Douglas fir trees. The family relocated a smaller cabin to make room for their new retreat, and they plan to convert the original structure into a game room for the kids.

Lori Hudson has probably painted Christina Lake a hundred times. “My kids tease me that it’s the only thing I ever paint,” she says. 

High above Christina Lake in British Columbia, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson designed an idyllic retreat for Lori Hudson, her husband, and their two boys.

It’s true that there’s not much that could top the view from her easel, positioned for maximum waterfront exposure where two tall windows meet at the back of her family cabin. But should Lori ever feel compelled to move her canvas out to the patio, she’d find an equally worthy subject in the house itself. 

The cabin’s exterior is clad in dark-stained western red cedar and fiber cement panels, and its cantilevered deck provides panoramic views.
