This project’s triumph is in proving that green technology is viable for mainstream construction. Ultimately the economics of sustainability make sense and the suite of green strategies this project incorporates appealed to a client with no green agenda at the outset. This project continues the Southern Ontario tradition of cottaging, while pushing the typology beyond one of occasional use into a year round dwelling. The home immerses itself in the surroundings, drawing from the beauty of the entire site, in addition to the powerful focus of the lake. Clean, modern spaces, rich in material and texture, in concert with a solid sustainable foundation results in enduring architecture. Please check on Altius site for more information.
