This poolhouse and guest cottage in Toronto, Canada designed by architects Shim-Sutcliffe sits adjacent a ravine and amongst a lush landscape . The simple structure attempts to blur the distinction between inside and out with interwoven elements that run the interior to exterior living areas. The reduced material palette of smoked glass and timber, gives clarity to the structural solution of the suspended clerestory that run continuous around the elevations.
