Located on Lake Simcoe, North of Toronto, this contemporary country retreat embraces its natural surroundings. The front façade establishes an understated, private street presence with heavier, more massive architectural feature walls and long horizontal lines. The private nature of the front is further reinforced by the density of the surrounding trees. The lakeside façade is an entirely open expression, enabling the home-owners to experience panoramic views of the lake and an unobstructed view of the sky. This double-height space provides a volumetric living room with a walkout to the large exterior deck, blurring the division between inside and outside, home and nature.
