Located in a remote part of Ontario in Canada, this single-family house is built on a site that gently slopes down toward Haliburton Lake. By designing the house as a long, narrow volume facing south, all the principal spaces enjoy copious amounts of natural light and views through the trees down to the lake.
In contrast to the timber roof structure and the stone-clad walls on the lower level, the exterior upper facades orientated north, east, and west are clad in matte black Swisspearl panels of varying dimensions, some attached horizontally, some attached vertically. The design dissolves the boundaries between interior and exterior by extending the exterior façade materials in the interior. The southern facade facing the lake has been dematerialized with great expanses of glazing to soak in light and views.
