Make draws on nature for Canadian house

Make Architects has unveiled these designs for a one-off private house in Canada.

The scheme is set in the Humber Valley Resort in Newfoundland, east Canada, on the banks of the Humber River.

The site is in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and the building's design is inspired by the valley's natural rock formations, while the glazing 'evokes the cascades of a waterfall', according to Make.

The south-facing house is being built with locally sourced materials and will be fitted with ground-source heating and cooling.

Make project architect Chris Kallan said: 'Our proposals draw on the Humber Valley's elemental qualities to create a residence that allows its occupants to experience the natural world and the changing seasons in the most comfortable surrounding modern architecture can provide.

'The result is a house that blurs distinctions between stone and water, nature and architecture, inside and outside.'
