Editor’s pickNatural, functional and built for its inhabitants, the designers thought of everything in this lakeside holiday home

09-02-2018

Our picture of the day goes to the Sky House in Stoney Lake, Canada!

Set on a steep slope, the holiday home is made of two volumes stacked on one another. Canadian designers Julia Jamrozik and Coryn Kempster made space for living and interaction, as well as a study, bedroom and accessible bathroom on the main level. They also made it accessible for guests who may be less mobile.

 

 

Simple, low-maintenance, long-life materials are used on the facade, including a reflective standing seam metal roof and a lapped thermally-treated wood cladding, while the interior is lined with formaldehyde-free plywood.

Playful elements are placed throughout from a glazed brick socle for the wood stove, to scattered colourful coat-hooks and a custom undercroft swing-bench.
