Sunset Cabin in Canada by Taylor Smyth Architects

| architect, architecture, Residential | September 10, 2009

Like I said yesterday…The residential projects featured on the design and architecture blogs are fantastic and abundant.  Take a look at this cabin designed by Ontario, Canada firm Taylor Smith Architects.  And when your done visit their website for more interesting projects.

The client has a house on the shores of Lake Simcoe in Southern Ontario.  TSA was hired to build a second smaller structure down the hill from the main house to accommodate a more peaceful alternative to the main house as well as another vista for the sunsets.  The 275 square feet one room cabin features a green roof, wood-burning stove, and horizontal cedar slats with openings that let in light.






Awesome cabin right.  I like to envision myself living in the houses (I’m sure you do too) – it motivates me to search for new ones.

    Lake Simcoe is awesome cottage country. The sky is like you wouldn’t believe in the city, you can actually see the Milky Way and smaller and smaller stars in between each other. Oh, look! There goes the satellite 🙂 Still, there are all usual stores nearby.
