This coastal house was completed by Canadian studio MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple. It features wooden shingles and gabled roofs. The home is lifted on concrete fins in order to protect it from tidal waves. The project is called “The Point House” and is located in Upper Kingsburg, a coastal town in Nova Scotia. The Point House is surrounded by water on three sides and is situated on a point of land that was once a small inshore fishing port.
Inside, the home has two volumes that are raised off the ground by concrete fins. To echo the traditional cottages, house was cladded in in cedar shingles and has the gabled roof. Large windows provide beautiful views over the landscape and brings in the natural light.
