Bar House

Bar House

Client: Private

Scale: 4,000 sq ft (1,220 sq m)

Budget: Withheld

Type: Residential

Location: Georgian Bay, Canada


Bar House lies on the peak of a promontory in the outer islands of the Georgian Bay Archipelago, one of Canada's most iconic and recognizable landscapes.


This house immerses its residents in the landscape so that their experience of their natural surroundings is complete and three-dimensional. They are at once inside and on top of the rock, and finally floating above it in the sky so that they can take in what some consider to be one of the most dramatic sunsets in the world.
