ERA Architects

Wild Rose Bunkie

This site is located on an outer island of Pointe au Baril in Georgian Bay. ERA was engaged to refurbish the historic Wild Rose Cottage and design a new “bunkie.” The Bunkie, used prefabricated SIP panels manufactured off-site and assembled on the island. It was custom designed to incorporate two bedrooms, a lounge, a pantry, and a bathroom, all within a tight footprint of 540 square feet. The interior, which captures views and light, is clad in a combination of new and salvaged woods, and the exterior is clad in materials able to withstand the hurricane-force winds of the location.
