House in Collingwood

The site of this project, prior to its development, was a pristine section of the Niagara Escarpment, adjacent to the Alpine Ski Club in Collingwood, Ontario. As the more prototypical suburban development complete with cul-de-sacs, sidewalks and wide paved roads moved in, the challenge was to provide a gateway or lens that re-connected the house back to its original environment.
