The Bridge House

Located on a ravine, on the shores of Mary Lake in Port Sydney, Ontario, between two large maple trees, the house has minimal impact on the surrounding area. It was built by crossing the steepest part of the slope, drawing a 38 meter long horizontal line in the air. Walking in the house is therefore equivalent to hanging over the ravine with the opportunity to admire a fantastic landscape.

The house has two main facades. One overlooks the lake, practically acting as a balcony that opens up to the natural landscape, while the other overlooks the forest and has a large opening that follows the shape of the structure, reflecting the natural profile of the ravine.

The house hangs from an inverted V-shaped glulam structure that also supports the external stairs, connecting the internal social area with the roof deck. The whole produces a sense of lightness that frames the landscape from the inside. A carefully crafted wood finish, using only local woods, produces a contrast that resonates with the surrounding landscape. The exterior is clad in a sumptuous cedar lining that runs horizontally, emphasizing the directionality of the volume on the site.
