SHIFT cottage on an island in Ontario, Canada’s Georgian Bay is a 2000-square-foot family cottage nestled into the exposed, washed granite. Thanks to that and tree line near it, the cottage is hidden from the strong winds off of the water. Its structure also designed to take advantage of the landscape views around. Glass link between two house’s volumes separate the site while wood deck terraces give outdoor space for kids to play. House’s outdoor space is great not only for kids but for their parents too. Water views through trees could only improve relaxing time there while reading a book during the sunny day. The pure forms of the cottage are highlighted and reinforced through material choice, including knotty cedar cladding, a standing seam metal roof, and a dry-laid stone fireplace. [Superkul]

    [...] Designed by aptly named architecture firm Superkul, the luxury Shift Cottage located on Canada’s Georgian Bay is super-cool, to say the least. The calm, uncomplicated characteristic of this northern Ontario setting sets the tone for this modern 2,000-sq.-ft. haven of rest and relaxation. The island cottage sits on the rocky terrain of the Canadian Shield, the subject of many Group of Seven masterpieces, and this idyllic location has too inspired the architects in designing this rustic home of quiet luxuries. A line of evergreens hides this cedar-clad cottage from public view. Behind the privacy of the trees, two separate volumes are linked by a glass walkway. Each wing of the house boasts large windows to take in the view, or for a more hands-on experience of the outdoors, wooden decks surround the home, framing picture-perfect views of forest and the Bay – the truest forms of Canadian cottage delights.
