Luxury Modern Lakehouse In Canada

Architecture firm SAOTA have gone about putting a major modern twist on the typical lakehouse aesthetic in a remote Canadian town. In departure from the regional traditional country cabin style, this summer house design is a highly modern concrete marvel with vast expanses of glass. With that said, the architects have endeavoured to make the design respectful to the natural setting on the banks of Lake Huron. The house has been sensitively set back on the plot, situated closer to the street in order to preserve the natural bluff. Surrounding mature fir trees have been preserved to largely conceal the approach to the house, and build magical suspense on arrival.
