Muskoka Lakes has become a locus for a growing footprint of contemporary architecture. One of the latest contributions is Muskoka Cottage by Toronto firm Akb Architects.
Overlooking the rocky shore of Lake Rosseau near Ontario’s Georgian Bay, Muskoka Cottage by Studio Paolo Ferrari is a testament to the beauty of the outdoor world. For the project, the studio asked: “Can we really make nature better than it is?” The conclusion? “Maybe we should leave it alone—or intervene, if we must, with the lightest possible touch.”
The story behind this home sounds like that of an intrepid pioneer, which gives the evident contemporaneousness of the building an extra layer of charm.
