Located just outside of the town of Yarmouth, this rural landscape was a prime location for the proposed family cottage developed in 2020. The cottage is situated near the road at the top of the plot, to allow easy access and take advantage of the incredible view looking out over Lake Milo. The building is designed in two sections: a public area for entertaining with high cathedral ceilings and exposed mass timber framing, and a second private area hosting sleeping accommodations and the like. Connecting the two sections is a fully glazed entranceway that extends out to a bridge, providing outdoor space for the family to enjoy. The project was envisioned as a modern layout with traditional forms and finishings.
