Cross Laminated Timber Cottage by Kariouk Associates

Cross Laminated Timber Cottage by Kariouk Associates - HomeWorldDesign (1)

This cabin is situated on the shore of a lake in Ladysmith, Canada. On this private land for more than 60 years there has been a family cabin. Due to the degradation of the old cabin, the owner decided to build a new cottage, resorting for this project to the architects’ services from Kariouk Associates. The owner wanted a more open spatial arrangement to enjoy nature and the beautiful view offered by the presence of the lake. The house design and the actual construction were simplified by the fact that the cabin did not require a significant isolation.

In order to minimize the costs of the shipyard and workers and to ensure in the same time the high quality of the building, it was decided to use prefabricated panels. The project was originally realized on the computer and following these sketches and calculations the necessary boards were cut and prepared for assembly. After the foundation was realized from steel-post, the whole cabin was assembled in less than two days.
