Project: Muskoka Cottage
Architects: Turkel Design
Location: Lake Muskoka, Ontario, Canada
Photography: Revelateur Studio
Designed to celebrate magnificent lake views from the moment of arrival, Muskoka Cottage is wide open on both sides, with expansive windows, an open floor plan, and two 24-foot-wide retractable walls of glass that tuck into pockets—connecting the double-height space with its natural surroundings and elevating views among the tree canopies.
Our clients wanted a space that would be conducive to entertaining, so we designed a large kitchen that’s open to the dining room, living space, and screened porch—and fit it with extensive custom cabinetry. Each bedroom and master shower offers clear views of the lake, which can also be enjoyed from an outdoor deck, seamlessly connected to the great room.
