Natural, functional and built for its inhabitants, the designers thought of everything in this lakeside holiday home

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.
