Historic Camp

Historic Camp

This early historic Pointe au Baril cottage was a quintessential cottage type, later expanded to include a tower belvedere and outbuildings scattered over the island’s rock outcroppings.

ERA’s design work overhauled the main cottage by reorganizing the living and sleeping spaces through the elimination of an underused second entrance and the addition of a new indoor washroom. A traditional peaked dormer was introduced into the main space to bathe it in natural light and provide cross ventilation for summer cooling. The resulting improved and comfortable summer cottage takes better advantage of its setting and the scenic views from it. ERA also designed a nearby sleeping cabin (bunkie) that embraces long westerly views. This off-the-grid solar-powered compound incorporates all modern conveniences.
