Interior of the house in the Canadian outback
• The interior of the house in the Canadian outback
While nearly three-hour drive from Toronto, Canada, this residence of 300 square meters is picturesquely situated along the shore of the lake in a remote Conto, at times virtually isolated from civilization woodland.
Authors of the project, studio architects Bohlin Grauman Miller Architects and Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, have designed two-storey house, ideal inscribed in the natural environment.
The main living and dining area on the ground floor and have direct access to the terrace; Bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs, which provides them with spectacular views of the lake and the forest. These two levels are connected glassed volume stairs adjacent to the slope, and sealed monolithic fireplace, dressed in the local granite. Made in a separate volume of the speaker sauna, ofuro bath and jacuzzi allow you to enjoy the close proximity of the natural environment while swimming. Strongly projecting eaves of the roof, showing a series of powerful beams made of Douglas fir wood, in harmony with the rhythm of the tree trunks of the surrounding forest.
Interior finishing up the same spruce, used in the design of the windows, walnut flooring, benches and bar countertops made of old boards, borrowed from a neighboring shed, and handmade tiles. This rich palette of materials gives the rooms a pleasant tactile feedback, which helps to create a feeling of harmonious connection with the surrounding nature.
