Taking inspiration from the rural farms, stunning valleys and historic structures that surround this property, this chalet captures the shape & proportions of the ‘Ontario Barn’ that stands unmoved against the elements. From the structure’s roof slopes & massing to the rugged board & batten siding, and grey colour tones, it sits in its simplicity, anchored in the landscape.
Dark windows filter natural light to the interior and rugged white trusses span the open concept living, dining & kitchen area. Learning from an era when practicality was part of survival, all the finish materials are hard-wearing and long-lasting. Metal, wood and stone all work together to create an enduring aesthetic.
