Timber Retreat Cabin | Sunset Cabin | Lake Simcoe | Canada | Taylor Smyth Architects

Nestled into a slope on the southern shore of Lake Simcoe, this one room sleeping cabin is a simple but sophisticated Canadian bunkie, evoking the “primitive hut” of branches constructed in the wilderness.

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.

All interior surfaces, including floor and ceiling, are fabricated of birch veneer plywood........more
