The small island of Nova Scotia in Canada has long been known for its beautiful coastline. The rough beauty of nature fascinates the tourists who like to visit the island. The Canadian architects Mackay-Lyons Sweetaple was inspired by the beautiful landscape and a House made of wood built on the rock.
A wooden house on the rocks offers a dream view of the coast
The minimalist House made of wood is located directly on the rocks. The building looks like it is floating over the ocean. Opened to the water through a richly glazed facade, the house closes towards the interior of the island. The villa fits perfectly into the landscape. The holiday home is part of the new construction project by the Canadian architects from Mackay Lyons Sweetapple. Several more villas will be built in the near future on an area of 1.84 square kilometers.
The steel structure gives the house stability, while the wooden cladding of the facade creates a visual connection to the traditional architecture in the area. An inclined support was installed in the living area. The innovative concept not only impresses with its modern design, but also with its low construction costs.

It develops inwards House made of wood from the northern living area with a wonderful view of the ocean to the dining area in the southern part. The bedrooms are located on the second floor, where the wooden facade protects from prying eyes.
