Jackfish Lake Residence

A Symphony of Form

This 40-year-old bungalow-style cabin is located on Alberta’s Jackfish Lake. It was the base for a design of a lake house that is functional, beautiful, and durable, built to withstand the ravages of time.

The architectural challenge in the design lay in integrating the old-school, wood-framed cabin into the new modernist design, while reorienting the home’s sight lines towards the lake.

The final result is a symphony of form — corrugated steel and plenty of glass with organic wood elements and pops of vibrant red. The interior spaces are clean, with Caribbean blue juxtaposed with white walls, the perfect backdrop for the couple’s art collection.
