Dream Dive Platform

Along the shores of Bob's Lake in Ontario sits the Dream Dive Platform. Conceived as a weekend project at a family cottage, this simple structure was designed to support two purposes: sleeping and swimming. It's built primarily from salvaged materials and is highly stripped down, with mesh providing protection from insects, a piece of waxed canvas that can be unrolled in wet weather, and a simple bed on the floor of the covered area.

  • False Bay Writer's Cabin

    Whether it's sunny or snowy, Washington's San Juan Islands are almost always windy. This fact plays into the design of False Bay Writer's Cabin. Another gem from Tom Kundig, it uses a trio of wooden slat decks and a system of winches, rope, sheaves, and blocks to raise them, completely closing off the cabin. Three sides of the 500 square foot space are glass, with a small area in the back for a bathroom and kitchenette. A blackened steel floor inlay helps tie the rotating fireplace into the design and bisects the wooden floor, giving the open floorplan an added sense of order.

  • Rose House

    Set high up in the Ukranian mountains, the Rose House is named for the patina of its weathered steel facade. The guesthouse is otherwise comprised of concrete and glass, with an artificial reflecting pool giving water equal prominence. Inside, the layout is fairly open, with a single bedroom, one and a half baths, and a combination living and dining area. The large floor-to-ceiling windows allow for natural lighting throughout the day, and three separate outdoor spaces help complete the seamless transition from indoors to out.
