Cabin Fever: Shuswap/Splyce Design
Posted by Oak and Oar on
Architect Nigel Paris of Vancouver based Splyce Design crafted this stunning 2,300 sq. ft seasonal retreat on Shuswap Lake in South Central British Columbia. The single level open concept design makes for the ultimate entertaining digs, marrying traditional cabin design with function and modern aesthetic.
Oversized sliding glass doors merge the open concept living quarters and the 180 degree view from the back deck. The design also features a separate guest wing tucked under the shade of the surrounding Cedars, Fir and Poplar trees.
With special attention to detail the open interior features exposed wood posts, beams and joints within the roof structure which align to form the quiet uninterrupted roof line. The room is set off by a booming masonry chimney which is sure to be a very popular place to pass the cool evenings.
