Luxury SHIFT Cottage Home in Canada by Superkul
Designed by Canada based architects, Superkül Architects. This luxury SHIFT cottage home is located in Georgian Bay, Ontario, Canada. This 2000 square foot modern family Shift cottage is nestled into the rock and against a line of trees, taking full advantage of the site’s natural beauty and its protection from the often extreme weather.
This luxury cottage was designed based on locally available construction materials and equipment to tread lightly on the land. A glass walkway links the cottage’s two volumes. The living spaces are in the volume closest to the shore; bedrooms are against the trees. Window openings are aligned throughout to allow views to the trees behind and the water in front. A cedar deck folds down to meet the rock; it hosts outdoor living spaces including a contained children’s play area and a private outdoor shower.
Sited in a natural clearing, no trees were removed to make the site. Pier foundations both obviated any blasting, and allow for passive under-croft cooling. The cottage is passively lit, ventilated and cooled, and the use of local and natural materials left largely in their unfinished states leaves a smaller footprint.
