Nestled into the shores of Parry Sound Canada sits a contemporary reinterpretation of a classic Lake Joseph boathouse by Altius Architecture. The modern twist on the Muskoka boathouse sits over the water with access via the bottom deck or overwaters bridge and features covered parking for two boats, which opens onto an entertaining deck with a sit-down bar.
At Altius we embrace new ideas such as modern design, sustainable practice, energy efficiency, and fun and creative ideas, while balancing them out with extensive building experience, and a breadth of understanding which is rare in our field.
An exterior set of stairs provides access to the upper level which boasts a master bedroom and ensuite at the rear with a sitting room at the front, overlooking the lake via floor to ceiling windows or an adjacent balcony. The Lake Joseph boathouse champions native materials inside and out to provide the client with a serene and calming oasis – the perfect retreat back into nature for any proud Canadians looking to escape and be right on the water.
