The Secluded ‘Cliff House’ Cabin Sits Atop A Rocky Nova Scotian Outcrop

Nov 19, 2019

Category: Living

The Nova Scotian coastline is a serene, yet surreal look at a world without distraction. As an embodiment of seclusion, the province’s rock-strewn waterfront boasts expansive sightlines and panoramic vistas, making it the perfect location for MacKay-Lyons’ introspective “Cliff House.”

The project bears the mark of Nova Scotia’s reserved nature, providing inhabitants with a rustic, removed dwelling that faces toward the sea. As it towers above the landscape on a pair of steel support columns, the cedar-clad home invites the coastline’s intimate embrace, weathering the seasons — from winter’s fog-embellished mornings to the warm, blissful days of summer. Inside, the 960-square-foot dwelling reveals its identity through an intricate composition of exposed wood, contemporary furniture, and simplistic styling, while a collection of front-facing windows frame the area’s mesmerizing landscape for all to see.
