Dramatic but simple, this house’s smart design principles and off kilter scale and proportions make for an interesting stay. Co-existing nicely into the environment, the home’s angular placement allows for an appreciation of both design and nature.
Positioned along the coast of Upper Kingsburg in Nova Scotia, this striking and unsual home has all the cool design credibility but remains very simple and livable.
Aptly named, the house was commissioned by creative directors David Peters and Rhonda Rubenstein and designed by Kingsburg resident and renown architect Brian Mackay-Lyons. Featured in the Phaidon Atlas of 21st Century World Architecture, the San Francisco Chronicle and more, the home has also been the subject of a celebrated photo essay by Jean-Luc Laloux.
The cool geometric lines and industrial materials of the exterior give way to warm and inviting interiors of sleek polished wood and windows calibrated to capture the panoramic views and natural light. Bright, refined and minimal, the cool simplicity combines the main living area with fireplace, kitchen and dining on the ground floor with two upstairs bedrooms that sleep four.
Combining refinement and raw natural beauty, this home offers the chance to experience nature while staying in a unique, architecturally acclaimed retreat by the sea.
Wifi throughout, TV/DVD. Housekeeping, laundry facilities and on site parking. Fireplace firewood provided.
Just over 90 minute drive from Halifax, the house is set above the coastal community of Upper Kingsburg. The town of Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is just minutes away as is the two mile long stretch of Hirtle Beach.
