Modern Georgina Home
Lake Drive East, Georgina, Ontario
A modern style home across the street from lake Simcoe. The client's two biggest requests were to have a rooftop terrace, and an exposed basement. The 50-foot wide by 150-foot long lot presented opportunities to experiment with iconic looking architecture.
The rooftop terrace has a covered minibar and a hot tub with several planters decorating the area on one side; a barbecue and lounge area on the other side facing the lake.
The client wanted large floor-to-ceiling windows between the first and second floor with a single large cantilever roof. In place of a closed garage, a covered parking area is located in the back which opens up the backyard more. The home will go unused in the winter. The house uses large I-beams that wrap around every cantilever juxtaposed by a warm wood material.
The backyard has large sliding glass panels that open up the back patio to the kitchen bringing the outside into the home.
