The design and construction of this cottage located in Monument Channel Georgian Bay was completed in 2013.Save this picture!Courtesy of CORE ArchitectsThe cottage is 2,125 sq. ft., and is designed for year-round use. The primary building material is Douglas Fir, which was used as the exposed structural frame, ceiling decking, interior wall finishes, interior cabinetry and kitchen island, etc.Save this picture!Courtesy of CORE ArchitectsThe design celebrates the simple use of a post and beam structural frame, where the rhythm of the columns, beams and purlins gives an overall organizational logic to the scheme. The wood is either solid sawn or milled to a profile, the timbers are sometimes massive and other times just efficient in their size, all the timbers were prefabricated, drilled for connections, etc. in the factory. The wood is left untreated and natural on the interior and finished with a clear, penetrating oil sealer on the exterior. The exterior cladding is either structural wood or cedar shingles; Ipe is also used as the exterior decking material and for the guardrail top rail/handrail. All materials had to be barged in given the remote location of the site. The house produces all its own electricity from solar panels and treats its own wastewater with a bio-filter septic system.Save this picture!Courtesy of CORE ArchitectsSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of CORE ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessMVRDV Wins Competition to Build An Urban Lagoon in TaiwanArchitecture News5 Projects at the Chicago Biennial that Demonstrate the State of the Art of Sustaina…Articles Share CopyHouses•Georgian Bay, Canada Projects CopyAbout this officeCORE ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGeorgian BayCanadaPublished on November 13, 2015Cite: “Monument Channel Cottage / CORE Architects” 13 Nov 2015.
