Ontario Cottage| 2023
Location : French River, Ontario, Canada
Progress : In Construction

With dark exterior timber and warm interiors themes throughout, this summer cottage was added to a rocky waterside for a family to share in Ontario, Canada. Designed to blend in with the landscape, the home is built around rocks and features exposed natural materials that reference the surrounding stones and pine trees. Drawing on the simple dwellings found in the local area, Architect John Rooney designed a volume with a punched overhang which naturally blends the interior and exterior spaces seamlessly. The main form is a response to create a simple form in contrast to the beautiful natural landscape. The main volume of the home contains an open kitchen and living space with a full wall of glazing that offers views of the water below.
