Clearview Chalet by AKB

This chalet is embedded into the side of a slope, providing a one-storey elevation upon entry with long views to Nottawasaga Bay. The clients wanted a custom-designed, contemporary chalet, requiring minimal maintenance, to be realized on a tight budget with a condensed construction schedule. This emphasis on practicality and economy led to a single volume clad in board and batton with a low pitched, overhung metal roof. The result is a simple black form in the snow-blanketed landscape. This stark contrast to the winter terrain is inverted inside, where white walls and large window openings dissolve the interior into an abstraction with the pristine snow outside. A modest interior of concrete floors, sliding doors, a wood burning fireplace and custom oak cabinetry combined with prefabricated cabinets, provide a serene backdrop within a well-proportioned and quiet space.
