Metrick Cottage and Boathouse by Akb Architects

FeaturedMetrick Cottage and Boathouse by Akb Architects

Settled in a rocky enclave of waterfront homes, Metrick Cottage is a one-storey, wood-clad, residence and boathouse on the shore of Lake Joseph, Ontario. This year-round retreat for a multi-generational family, draws inspiration from the rugged beauty that surrounds it to create a warm, elegant and eco-friendly home.

From the lake, the cottage is designed to elegantly blend into the rugged terrain, while the boathouse, a complimentary, three-slip storage, maintains a quiet presence on the water. Together, the home offers a serene oasis for the Metrick family, with panoramic views of the lake and shoreline beyond.
