Nova Scotia Cliff House

Suspended off a rocky bluff, the Nova Scotia Cliff House is a rustic seaside retreat. The simple cedar-clad box extends out over the bedrock and is perched off the ground by a galvanized steel pedestal. Comprised of just 960-square-feet, its interior maximizes living space with an open floor plan and double-height ceilings while exposed timber framing and steel beams create modern cabin vibes. This minimalist approach allows the focus to remain on the coastal landscape. Wrapped in south-facing windows, the glazing gives the sensation of floating above the seashore.
