The Cliff House in Nova Scotia may be the perfect place to gather thoughts, work without distraction and just relax. It was built by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects and features a rather rigorous design. The house is basically an angular wooden box that extends over the edge of a rocky cliff on one of Canada's coastlines.
The main two-storey structure is built upon a light steel skeleton that guarantees endurance against strong coastal winds and a large, galvanised support anchoring it to the rock. The cabin's simplicity is reiterated by its interior which compromises functionality with the beauty of minimalism. The amount of furniture and decoration was reduced to the necessary minimum. While there is an open space living room on the first floor, the second floor holds a cozy bedroom. Both chambers are spacious, well-lit, and offer an unobstructed, panoramic view of the ocean and the breathtaking landscape.
Cliff House was constructed with an extremely low budget and intended as a repeatable prototype. It's the perfect retreat for those who are tired of hectic lifestyle and look for undisturbed rest in the company of nature.
