Located on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean in Nova Scotia is a beautiful modern structure dubbed the Smith Pavilion House. This eye-catching structure was designed to mimic the local architecture, essentially forming its own mini fishing village. The dwelling is comprised of a series of simple, gabled volumes that are placed on a stone plinth of local granite. The structures are traditional in form, boasting Corten steel cladding and clean lines that add to the modern aesthetic.
The three structures are organized in a way to create a series of courtyards, blocking the wind and allowing spaces to relax or entertain. These areas also feature micro-climates, thanks to the courtyards ample sun. Internally, the living spaces are divided among the two pavilions. The third building functions as a shed, offering storage in the process. The structures feature the same rustic minimalism as the exterior, boasting blackened steel beams, wood panel ceilings, and a granite fireplace. The sea-facing windows afford sweeping coastal vistas that are captivating and unrivaled.
