Leave it to Nova Scotia to make this time of a year a little more endearing. Rolling fog and chiseled landscapes must be the black suit of landscapes. Exploiting this advantage is Canadian firm Mackay-Lyons Sweetapple. Their 960 sqft Cliff House is situated on a 455 acre coastal property and designed with a deference to the beauty of the landscape. Though decidedly monolithic in silhouette, the home is does a lot with a little. Galvanized steel framing supports a modest but impressive wood-clad envelope, resulting in what might be a described as a very grown-up club house. For more, visit Mackay-Lyons Sweetapple.
