House of the Week 140: Two Hulls House

Designed by architects MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple for a young family of four, the programme of the coastal home in Port Mouton, Nova Scotia, Canada is divided into a ‘day pavilion' and a ‘night pavilion.' The architectural expression is defined by two ship-like rectangular volumes that cantilever above the shoreline and concrete seawall. Internally the spaces are simple concrete floors, naturally finished timber and white plaster walls and like most projects from the architect's oeuvre stresses place, craft, and community.
