Monument Channel Cottage-Core Architects-02-1 Kindesign

Monument Channel Cottage is a wonderful post and beam vacation retreat designed by Core Architects, located in Monument Channel Georgian Bay, Ontario, Canada. The structural wood and cedar shingle clad home is nestled on a rocky outcropping just above a lake offering large expanses of fenestration to provide the homeowners with unparalleled views. Designed a a four season home, the 2,125 square feet of interior living spaces offer plenty of function with a welcoming atmosphere, inviting you to stay awhile. Wood is used as a primary material throughout the home and is left untreated and natural on the interiors and finished with oil sealer on the exterior facade. On the outside of the home Ipe wood is used as a decking material as well as for the handrail. The home offers a lot of privacy due to its remote location, which made it tricky to bring in all the building materials, which had to be brought in by a barge. The cottage is self-sustaining, producing its own electricity with solar panels and there is a bio-filter septic system to treat the wastewater.
