Stealth Cabin is a residential project completed by superkül.
It is positioned in Ontario, Canada, and was completed in 2011.
Stealth Cabin by superkül:
“Sited on a lake close to Bracebridge, this tiny-footprint loved ones cottage was developed to integrate with its all-natural surroundings and reduce its environmental impact. The customers had been torn in between wanting a standard log cabin and one thing a lot more modern. The creation of a sculptural wood form bridged this gap, simultaneously imbuing the project with an aesthetic warmth, in a price-effective manner that capitalized on the strength of the neighborhood carpentry trades. The sculptural reading of the type relies to a wonderful degree on its material continuity.
Cedar was utilised throughout to accomplish this – on the interior walls and ceilings, on the roof, and as exterior cladding. The tonal and textural differences of the shakes and siding generate a visual depth and interest. Huge wood-frame windows and doors overlook the lake to the south, and provide access to a extended cedar deck. As the untreated cedar boards and shakes weather and bleach out more than time, the cottage will blend additional into its landscape.
The name of the cottage – ‘Stealth Cabin’ – refers to this material and formal blending.”
