A summer cottage located floating on the shores of a private lake in Ontario has been designed with all the communal facilities on the upper floor. The area has been designed as one big open flexible space to cater to the communal ‘holiday’ atmosphere required by the client. In this space, the high ceilings and large picture windows capture the lake breezes and afford incredible views over the water. The bedrooms and more private spaces are located on the deck level below. This allows each bedroom to operate independently with direct access to the water for swimming and canoeing. You look out to your own personal piece of the lake.
