Lake Cottage is an interpretation of the traditional tree house – the minimalist one House in the woods reflects the beautiful nature. Located in a picturesque area in the mountains, near a lake, the two-story villa offers everything you could want from a weekend home.
House in the forest – an attractive facade made of glass
An extended family commissioned the architects from UUFI with the task of completing a weekend house near Lake Kawartha in Canada. The project was recently completed – and the end result is fascinating with a seamless connection between architecture and nature. The construction is very innovative – the terrace was laid out with slabs of tree trunks, the facade – clad in large mirrors, the gable roof – made of black stainless steel and then clad in cedar. The end result is a minimalist building that blends harmoniously into the landscape.
House in the forest – futuristic interior design
That House in the woods impresses with an almost futuristic interior design – the individual rooms appear almost abstract. The spacious living area is sparingly but very stylishly furnished with black furniture. Many windows let in plenty of sunlight into the interior, the white ceiling and walls even make it appear brighter and more cozy. The white color also creates a visual connection to the snow-covered landscape. A weekend house where you can relax from the hectic everyday life in the big city – this is how the architectural wonder can be described.
