Canada’s net-zero energy lakeside home

Canada’s net-zero energy lakeside home

By v2com
Atop the steep topography of a lake-side site in Ontario, Canada, sits a holiday home that consists of two storeys stacked on top of one another.

Canadian designers, artists and educators – Julia Jamrozik and Coryn Kempster – were contracted to design this home that sits well on the steep site of Stoney Lake.

This house’s lower volume nestles into the landscape so that it is barely visible as you first approach the house. The upper volume rests on the lower one and on a concrete pier to form both a bridge and a cantilever. This massing strategy allows for increased access and permeability of the site and emphasises the charged relationship between the building and the ground.
