Designed to sit on the craggy tip of an island in Georgian Bay, the design for this house pays tribute to the Inukshuk, a First Nations’ ritual in which people build wayfinders by stacking stones. These stone landmarks are sculptures that people erect to navigate the tundra and retrace their footsteps. With Inukshuk House, the sculptural wayfinder becomes a home itself.
