Custom House More Than 3,000 Square Feet: Honorable Mention
The 4,300-square-foot Compass House, designed by Superkül, is a weekend home for a family of six that sits on a predominantly flat 200-acre site in Mulmur, Ontario. Two volumes in an L-shaped plan create a courtyard from which the family can view the site’s three principal landscapes—forest to the west, hills to the south, and fields to the north and east—over low retaining walls built of site-found fieldstone that mark the complex’s perimeter. White cement-board cladding wraps the low-slung exteriors, and the warm interiors feature white oak and knotty white cedar floors and walls which glow with the abundant light that reflects off of white ceilings.
