Architectural company Superkül have created the Stealth Cabin, located in Bracebridge, Ontario.
The style set out to make a tiny footprint residence that married the warmth of a standard log cabin with clean lines and vitality efficiency. Made to nestle into the present topography of the internet site, the sculptural kind of the cabin takes its cues from the rise and fall of the land, and the kind of an overturned boat found on the house. A tiny environmental footprint was paramount to the customers. The cabin is sited to protect the optimum amount of living trees, and consider advantage of the prevailing breezes for passive cooling. The cabin and the radiant heating technique had been developed so that the north half of the cabin could be closed off when not in use, to decrease energy consumption. Hot exhaust air from the high efficiency fireplace is ducted below the concrete floor slab to offer supplemental heating. The cabin i s created for passive cooling and ventilation and orientated to get advantage of the prevailing breezes on the site. To minimize VOCs and resource use, interior and exterior wood surfaces were left untreated. This also assists to maximize indoor air quality. FSC lumber was used throughout the undertaking.
“Stealth’s design and style was influenced by its surroundings and blends properly with its surroundings. The lines and angles of the cabin perform off the lines of the surrounding trees. It is a great instance of using natural components in a modern but unobtrusive way. The OAA is excited to bring attention to progressive tasks like this,” Bill Birdsell, president, Ontario Association of Architects.’
