Nicholas Fudge Architects have built a house that matches the uniqueness of the Bras D\u2019or Lake in Nova Scotia, Canada. The Bras D\u2019or Lake is actually an inland sea, meaning it is a large body of water consisting partially of fresh and salt water. Bras D\u2019or sits in the center of Cape Breton Islands. For such a unique local, only a unique house will do, and that\u2019s what Fudge has done.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe project was actually prefabricated off-site. This approach allowed for a shorter construction time and had the benefit of not exposing the structure to the elements for an extended period. It only took two days to assemble the 1,900 square foot home. The walls feature 2X4 studs on a 2X8 plate, thus eliminating thermal bridging for increased energy efficiency.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe home is actually three separate sections joined by a central hallway that both ties the structures together and serves as a public space. The hallway also houses the owner\u2019s office. The larger of the section is meant to be another public space dining, cooking, and living areas. The other two sructures serve as private rooms.\r\n\r\nPerhaps the most unique feature of the home is the slope of the roof. The ceilings rise from front to back, creating a optic of the house stretching on longer than it actually does. The ceilings\u2019 highest points face the incredible view of the Bras D\u2019or Lake, while the lower ends seem anchored to the surrounding forest. The lake-view end opens into floor-to-ceiling windows.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many? You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
