Cressy House

Prince Edward County, Ontario

On the shore of Lake Ontario, adjacent to a large wetland, this residence merges ecological design and logical planning with a contemporary style that takes cues from the local agrarian architecture. Four interconnected buildings evocative of an evolved farmhouse separate public and private activities, while also creating a series of external courtyards. The materials, organization of structures and framed views from the residence are experienced as a series of juxtapositions: tradition and innovation, building and landscape, shelter and exposure.
