I am falling in love with The Carling Residence in Georgian Bay, designed by Tact Architecture, because the landscape’s natural features are completely optimized while preserving the natural topography of the land. The home is built amongst the towering tress to provide the home with a natural shade and privacy while still allowing for magnificent views of the bay.
Resting lightly on the land, the structure maximizes views, day light, solar heat gain, super insulated walls and roof, and natural cooling: in the summer home requires no air conditioning because the north and south windows provide a natural cross ventilation.
The interior is also minimalistic and the materials that predominate are stone, wood and concrete to offer a combination of rustic and modern elements although of an almost Zen-like simplicity.
