A pair of cabins made from weathered steel and reclaimed barn wood has popped on a Navajo reservation in Colorado. Inspired by the surrounding red sand desert, the industrial modern Sunrise and Sunset Cabins were constructed through a collaborative partnership between the graduate students and faculty from the University of Colorado Denver’s Design Build BLUFF program and the Mexican Water Chapter of the Navajo Nation. The rentable cube-like dwellings were created to attract tourism dollars to the reservation and help stimulate the local economy.
