Broad Cove Lookout

Overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Nova Scotia's Cape Breton Island, The Lookout at Broad Cove Marsh provides a coastal getaway with expansive views. The narrow, single-story structure runs parallel with the water, accommodating its slender cliffside plot. From the road, the home is concealed by a large concrete retaining wall, topped by a small sliver of glazing to let in the north-eastern light. In contrast to its monolithic rear, the southwest side is encased by walls of glass, affording expansive views of the seaside setting. The interior is split into two halves, the first being a set of pod-like volumes that house the bedrooms and bathrooms. The other half is occupied by a timber-clad living area, lined with floor-to-ceiling glazed doors that open the space up to the salty ocean breeze.

  • MK House

    With a design from a former understudy of Vincent Van Duysen, the MK House imbues an Antwerp townhouse with a charming yet austere interior. Warming touches like wooden herringbone flooring and exposed wooden beams mix with stark white walls and dashes of stone and marble — used most conspicuously on the kitchen cabinets — to create an inviting atmosphere. Large banks of windows allow plenty of natural light to pour in, while the owners' collection of artwork helps give the neutral palette a touch of added personality.

Whether you're spending the weekend lakeside or unplugging in the middle of the forest, a floor-to-ceiling glazed wall puts your location on full display.
