Located on a sea shore in Nova Scotia, Canada, this lengthy and narrow property follows the shape of the rocky promontory it is constructed on. The style was adapted by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects to resists harsh weather and heavy waves. The body of the property is perched on a series of parallel concrete slabs that have the role of breaking the waves and stopping the home from flooding. The facades are made of glass and corrugated aluminum panels, that alternate safeguarding the house exactly where essential and opening it up to the views exactly where feasible. The entrance into the house is done via an opening into the body of the home that serves as a platform to admire the views at the same time.There are two doors, one particular to the left and a single to the correct, the one to the correct top into the major side of the property. The roof has a gentle slope from the front towards the back of the residence, producing a double height at its highest end. Via the property might look a two-storey a single from the outside, a second storey has been only developed at the front of the house, above the open terrace. It is not a actual second floor, but a mezzanine that is open on the living space and is only enclosed by a glass balustrade. The living area region is set under an virtually double height and has large glass windows facing the sea on a single side.
The tunnel-like opening into the body of the house directs the views towards the sea and the horizon. It looks like a framed image of a beautiful sea-scape, particularly when it captures the sunset.
The roof is sustained by rectangular metal frames that grow gradually in size from the back to the front of the property. The space committed to the living area has a fireplace built into the back wall and a glass front opening on the sea.
The final such frame limits the mezzanine platform, that is accessible by climbing a metal ladder. This mezzanine is actually the only bedroom of the house.
The living area is continued with a corner decked terrace that opens virtually 360 degrees views of the sea .
