This cottage is situated on an outer island of Pointe au Baril in Georgian Bay. ERA designed renovations to a recently built small cottage and planned future alterations and additions.
Keeping the cottage volume more or less as existing the interior was completely and efficiently redesigned. The updated cottage was fully winterized and fitted out with a new loft, a barrel-vaulted ceiling, a stone Rumford fireplace, and rich new millwork using a range of salvaged and new wood, in keeping with Point au Baril cottage traditions
Views were reorganized to capture 180-degree vistas of the Georgian Bay horizon. A large deck for children’s play and the enjoyment of the newly defined views complements the architectural form of the cottage. ERA also designed a dry boathouse and an outdoor shower to complete the ensemble.
