North Cottage

Muskoka, Ontario

This 3,000 s.f. seasonal home is located on Tobin Island in the Muskoka Lakes region of Ontario, Canada.  The heavily wooded site slopes steeply down to the waters edge over large rock outcroppings that cover the majority of the site surface. In response to the site character, the home is weaved between the trees and designed to lightly sit on heavy timber stilts above the rocky ground. The interior spaces connect to the outdoors through transitional spaces that utilize sliding glass walls, screened rooms, bridged walkways, open decks and patios to create a variety of exposures that match the various weather conditions and seasonal needs.
