Muskoka, Ontario, Canada – Christopher Simmonds Architect

This boathouse won ‘Best Project in the Open Category’ at the Ottawa Housing Design Awards in 2011, and it’s no wonder why!

This stunning boathouse is situated at the end of a lake in Muskoka. It’s an aesthetically lightweight floating structure that houses a clean, modern interior  that connects with the natural environment through its wooden theme and large windows.
