Located on the outskirts of Port Hope, this private residence slopes southward across farmland, interrupted briefly by a dense woodlot, and overlooks Lake Ontario from atop a 75-foot cliff. The shape and circulation of the home are informed by the natural surroundings and striking views. The organic slender structure ascends from the ground and projects towards the lake, growing in breadth and height before cantilevering over the dramatic edge. As the form shifts and separates, the interior spaces fill with light through clerestory windows.
