ONE- AND TWO-FAMILY CUSTOM RESIDENCES The Bear Stand ARCHITECT: BOHLIN CYWINSKI JACKSON LOCATION: ONTARIO, CANADA PROJECT SIZE: 3,245 square feet Located three hours northeast of Toronto, this 3,300-square-foot retreat is carefully situated along the shores of Contau Lake on a remote, seasonally isolated woodland spanning nearly 100 acres. Recalling childhood adventures exploring the surrounding lakes and forest, the clients wished to share this unique place with others by creating a place of reprieve to be rented to vacationing families. The two-story residence stretches parallel to the lake and a granite rock face rising up to the south, with primary living and dining spaces at ground level spilling to the outdoors, and sleep- ing and bathing spaces perched above to capture expansive views of the lake and surrounding forest. The retreat serves as a jumping-off point to an expansive private trail network fashioned by the client. A series of delicate canoe docks and boardwalks knit shallow marshes with hilltop perches, urging exploration by both water and land.—Bohlin Cywinski Jackson 27 VOL. 3, 2018 RESIDENTIALDESIGNMAGA ZINE.COM
