Trevor McIvor Architect Inc, have completed a multi-phase project in  Penetanguishene, Ontario, that overlooks Georgian Bay, which is part of Lake Huron.

 

This project included three phases: the main cottage (on the right in the photo below), the reno cottage (on the left), as well as the landscaping between the two cottages.

The smaller cottage was renovated to match the new cottage, and elements such as cladding, form, and windows, were updated. The landscaping between the two buildings consists of stone and native plants, allowing the two cottages to be seen as one project.

The new ‘Severn Sound Cottage’ has a contemporary design featuring large roof overhangs, 13ft (4m) ceiling heights with Douglas Fir wood ceilings and soffits, and exposed timber joists.

The strongest feature is the cantilevered roof sheltering the area between the living space and the outdoor terrace.

Inside, there’s an open-concept layout as well as clean, simple detailing. When the sliding doors are open, the living space spills onto the outside, creating an indoor/outdoor living environment.

Most of the public spaces in the main cottage have large windows, making the user feel as if they are outside.

The main cottage also has more private areas, like bedrooms and bathrooms. In this bathroom, a double sink wood vanity with a white countertop sits beside a walk-in shower. A frosted window provides privacy, but at the same time, still lets the natural light through.
