Timber Retreat Cabin | Sunset Cabin | Lake Simcoe | Canada | Taylor Smyth Architects
The clients desired a private retreat from the main cottage further up the hill that would also enhance their enjoyment of the surrounding landscape in a location previously used to watch the sunset.
The fully insulated glass cabin is encased on three sides by cedar slats.
A green roof is planted with sedums and herbs to camouflage views of the cabin from the main cottage. The minimal furnishing includes a bed with built-in drawers, a wall of storage cabinets and a wood-burning stove. All interior surfaces, including floor and ceiling, are fabricated of birch veneer plywood........more
