This project for the renovation of an existing boathouse and new 600 sq.ft. second storey guest suite is located in the Muskoka Lakes region of Ontario.  Situated at the end of a narrow bay, the design of the new boathouse mediates between extended views out to the wide vista of the distant lake and the immediacy of the enclosed forested shoreline of the bay.  The design provides a lens for these varied views as well as a sheltering foil to the open lake breezes and water traffic.  The project called for the renovation of an existing two slip boathouse and the addition of a second storey guest suite and roof terrace.
