Anchored at a cliff in Nova Scotia’s Atlantic coast, the this modest 90 sqm cabin functions as a retreat that looks like a wooden box floating on the landscape.
Its contains a great room along with an open loft as sleeping space, a large glazed windows faces the spectacular views in south. This simple box is clad in cedar shiplap and relies on two light steel skeletons.
Inspiration from architect:
This pure box in the landscape is precariously perched off a bedrock cliff to heighten one’s experience of the landscape through a sense of vertigo and a sense of floating on the sea. This strategy features the building’s fifth elevation – its ‘belly’.
