Swedish Log Cabin, Austin, Texas

The Swedish Log Cabin is a display cabin located inside of Zilker Botanical Gardens. Built in 1838, the cabin was deconstructed, relocated, and rebuilt five separate times throughout Austin. Overtime the grade level log became damaged and started rotting due to rainwater running off at the base of the cabin. The interior was also in bad shape, as it was often intruded by animals. h+uo architects worked with the Austin Parks and Recreation Department to restore the cabin.
