Lighthouse by LineBox.

Architectural firm LineBox have created this stunning house in Ottawa, adhering to their belief that ‘successful design is about integrating the environment with the architecture context, client needs, project budget, and artistic expression into a truly unique sense of place.’

The house appears to draw inspiration from elements of cubist design, everything is clearly formed, calculated and impressed by the strength of the clean and polished wood panelling employed on the outside. The usage of maple   panelling, and the steel framework that borders the house, is the crucial aspect of this building, with each complementing the other.

Orientated so as to prevent the house becoming overheated in the summer, though allowing it to absorb indirect heat by use of the longer windows set in south-side corner of the house. The theme of wood on metal permeates into the house itself, with the flooring and staircase too featuring the collaboration of maple and steel.
