Stealth Cabin by superkül:

“Sited on a lake close to Bracebridge, this tiny-footprint household cottage was made to integrate with its normal surroundings and decrease its environmental effect. The consumers had been torn among wanting a conventional log cabin and some thing far more contemporary. The creation of a sculptural wood type bridged this gap, simultaneously imbuing the task with an aesthetic warmth, in a cost-efficient method that capitalized on the power of the regional carpentry trades. The sculptural reading through of the type relies to a great degree on its material continuity.

Cedar was used during to obtain this – on the interior walls and ceilings, on the roof, and as exterior cladding. The tonal and textural distinctions of the shakes and siding develop a visual depth and curiosity. Big wood-frame windows and doors overlook the lake to the south, and supply access to a long cedar deck. As the untreated cedar boards and shakes weather and bleach out more than time, the cottage will blend even more into its landscape.

The title of the cottage – ‘Stealth Cabin’ – refers to this material and formal blending.”
