Bala Park Island in Lake Muskoka , Canada by Altius Architecture (designed using ArchiCAD)

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

Article source: Altius Architecture

As with all our cottage work the site had a major influence on the design. The main level of the building nestles up against a distinct granite ridge. The ridge provides a perfect landing for the second level which anchors the building back on to the Canadian shield. The landing for the upper level walks out to a path that follows the ridge to a future bunkie. The design is a simple roof line that tilts upwards revealing the ridge through clerestory windows. The floor levels follow the slope varying the interior ceiling heights. The exposed Douglas Fir roof joists provide a continuous rhythm across the entire ground floor ceiling.
