This summer house is set on the banks of Lake Huron in a small, remote Canadian town about an hour’s drive from London, Ontario. While the architectural context might be characterised as somewhat conservative “cabin country”, this house attempts to extend the possibilities of the traditional lakeside family retreat through a contemporary architectural approach, harnessing recent developments in design, technology and sustainability to connect meaningfully with its beautiful natural setting while exploring new ways of enhancing the lifestyle experience of the family summer getaway.
Complementing the barefoot luxury design style of the interiors, the material and colour palette are neutral hues accompanied by medium tones to add richness and personality to the home.
Interesting textures provide visual and tactile interest while elevating the overall experience of the interior.
The occasional use of bronzes and metallics adds to the contemporary feel of the home, while beautiful timbers, marbles and leathers complement the sophisticated palette.
