de Vries House This is a house for a retired writer who was returning to Canada with a fantastic personal library. The scheme creates the experience of living among books. The main interior feature is a long skylight slot, which acts as a spine and orientation device connecting the entrance, master suite, great room and a generous second floor library overlooking the sea. #mackaylyonssweetapplearchitects #architecture #design #modernarchitecture #house #novascotia #archdaily #dezeen #uncrate #opumo

de Vries House The plan addresses the human need for both prospect and refuge by contrasting a mute, protective, thick north service wall against the woods with a glazed south wall facing the sea. Large bites are subtracted from the monolithic form to create a covered entrance and a sheltered south terrace overlooking the Atlantic. #mackaylyonssweetapplearchitects #architecture #design #modernarchitecture #house #novascotia #archdaily #dezeen #uncrate #opumo

Quebec Pool House Internal bathing and changing areas open onto a gym/lounge with a monumental hearth and sliding glass wall; beyond are a covered terrace, the exterior hot tub and infinity lap pool, and finally the agrarian floodplain in the distance. The mechanical plant is buried in the ground behind the house. #mackaylyonssweetapplearchitects #architecture #modernarchitecture #modern #poolhouse #quebec #archdaily #dezeen

This minimalist pavilion, embraced by elongated board-formed concrete walls that reach out into the landscape, is inspired by Mies van der Rohe's 1929 Barcelona Pavilion, which established the grammar of elemental modern architecture. photo by @jamesbrittainphotographs #mackaylyonssweetapplearchitects #architecture #design #modern #quebec
