The cottage was designed as a split level home for 4 families in Gull Lake, Alberta. The cottage is situated at the southern tip of the Boreal forrest, offering a lush and tropic-like escape from the typically dry Calgary weather.
Using a combination of wood and metal, this building uses recycled grain elevator wood for the majority of its structure. Challenges during this project were designing the roof that would shield the house from the wet climate.
The entrance includes a curved entryway that leads into the living room. Natural cedar was used for the interior, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for visitors to relax.
