Stanley Bay Contemporary Cottage-Trevor McIvor Architect-01-1 Kindesign

Stanley Bay Cottage is a contemporary single-family home designed in 2016 by Trevor McIvor Architect Inc, sited overlooking beautiful Lake Joseph, in Seguin Township, Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. Lake Joseph is known as the idyllic cottage country region of Ontario. This stunning home encompasses 3,500 square feet of living space, with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms.

The cottage is anchored into the surrounding granite stone  with a lower level walk out facing the lake. The varying roof planes of the building are inspired by the sloping landscapes. Upon approach, the lake is revealed through the home’s transparency. Vertical and horizontal pre-finished wood siding is used to accentuate the various volumes and highlighting the program.

The cottage is proportionately glazed focusing on framing views, solar gain, as well as energy efficiency and circulation. The main space is quite open with the kitchen, living room, and dining room forming one entity. The lowered family room is separated slightly from the main area with a double-sided stone fireplace and multi-panel lift and sliding doors acting almost as a screened in porch. The radiant heating system is complemented by an evacuated tube solar array.
