Nestled on the rocky Canadian Shield in Pointe Au Baril, three hours north of Toronto, this sustainable 3-season modern cottage quietly overlooks the shimmering waters of Georgian Bay with a design that blends with nature, but remains a focal point on its 2.8-acre island property. Designed by architects Agathom Co., the goal of this modern design was to deliver creature comforts – with a little class – while treading lightly on the land. The result is a cool, contemporary profile that’s balanced by the rustic look of its reclaimed wood-clad facade and topped by a green asphalt roof. Inside, the 1,000-sq.-ft. cabin boasts a bedroom, a living room with a library, a kitchen and dining room, and a loft. Solar panels power a pump that supplies water to the house. At the center of the cottage is a Rumford fireplace built of locally sourced stone. Agathom Co.
