Four-Season Lake House With A Modest Yet Modern Design

Four-Season Lake House With A Modest Yet Modern Design

Located in Perth, Canada, this charming lake house was built for a multi-generation family in order to accommodate its new members. It was a project completed in 2019 by studio Christopher Simmonds Architect. The initial brief was simple: their clients wanted a new 4-season cottage which would be able to engage the landscape and take advantage of the views and the natural surroundings.

There was however a tricky part. The cottage had to be modern but also to be able to blend with the old cottages which had a strong rural vibe. In order to make that happen the architects gave the new structure a gabled roof, charcoal grey cladding and a zinc-colored metal roof but also large walls and stone steps that help it connect to the landscape.

The house has this nice way of looking modest and of standing out at the same time. It’s definitely an interesting structure and not just because of that. On one side the house is framed by a series of limestone planter beds which link the upper and lower patio. They form a terraced structure which roots the house into the ground and connect it to the site and its immediate surroundings. Inside, the house is bright and simple. Fully glazed walls let in lots of natural light which is enhanced by all the white walls and ceilings. The white oak flooring adds warmth to the decor and occasional black accents serve to highlight certain features and to create focal points.
