Nova Scotia might be home to some of the world’s most immaculate oceanside cliffs, canyons, and waterways, but it’s also a land that places high value in sociable, accessible living spaces. The Lookout At Broad Cove Marsh by Canada’s Omar Gandhi Architect embodies both an adventurous design principal and an intimate purpose — making it a quintessential space for fostered connection.
Situated along a narrow piece of frozen land between an oceanside cliff and a forested country road, the Lookout is a serene escape located just outside Inverness, on Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton Island. The property, which presides over the Gulf of St. Lawrence, boasts spectacular sunset views and finds itself in close vicinity to world-renowned fairways, cliffsides, and sandy beaches. The exterior of the home is dressed in a staggering white brick, proving a perfect foundation for an expansive wooden deck, dark metal supports, and plywood siding. A rectangular, 2000 square-foot living space plays host to a full-size kitchen and modern sleeping areas — providing a perfect space for familial socialization.
