Replacing the old family cottage, this new build by U31, was fashioned to reflect the couples’ changing needs. Set in the tranquility of Lake Couchiching, the low-slung architectural form with its intersecting roof pitches and expansive glazing, provided the perfect starting point to create something modern and warm with a playfulness well suited to its owners.

Designed as a primary residence, as well as a captivating get-away destination for family and friends, the restrained detailing in the form of walnut slatted partitions, wood clad ceilings and the clean white envelope, all provide a nod to the architect’s vision and allowed us to animate the spaces with eclectic combinations of colours, textures and personal artifacts which speak to the client’s unpretentious passion for a life well lived.
