“Dont tear me down” House

Balsam Lake, Canada
Under Construction

Commisioned to design a house, the proposal asked to tear down a small “bunky” cabin on the site, to make room for a big new home. 

But we asked, does the “bunky” cabin want to be torn down? 

This proposal adds to the existing cabin, while maintaining its interior entirely. Two large roofs create canopies over simple box shapes. A central glass lobby connects the old and the new buildings.
