Spaces: GH3 Architects: Williams Studio/Boathouse: Stony Lake, Ontario

. Sunday, August 1, 2010

A reinterpretation of the archetypical glass house, on the shoreline of Ontario's Stony Lake. Sleek and minimal, as not to distract from the incredible views of the surrounding landscape.  A great example of context driven architecture.

"The compelling qualities of simple, open spaces; interior and exterior unity and material clarity are transformed to enhance the environmental and programmatic performance of the building, creating architecture of both iconic resonance and innovative context–driven design."

Complimenting the interior are some classic pieces of 20th Century modernism, including a Harry Bertoia Diamond Chair, a Hans Wegner Ox Chair, and an Eero Aarnio hanging Bubble Chair.
