The Wedge updates the traditional cabin using strategic angles to maximize space. The key to the unique design is the angled roof, which opens up the interior while also allowing snow and rain to run off the cabin naturally. The exterior is clad in Western red cedar, while the inside is made from sustainable ACX plywood that creates a warm atmosphere.

Inside, the angled roof creates enough room for a full size bed, twin bunk beds, as well as custom seating, storage and tables made from plywood. Exposed plywood interior walls keep costs low, but create a rustic atmosphere in the off the grid cabin. Simple hooks create extra storage spaces for keeping the cabin tidy and organized.

The front façade of The Wedge is clad in floor to ceiling glass windows and double doors, which flood the interior with light. A row of additional windows along the top of the cabin combined with a glass door on the exterior keep things light and airy. The front double doors open onto a shady patio that is protected by a large covered roof overhang.

The students, along with State Park officials, hope their modern cabin will entice more campers to visit California’s state parks.
