The Two Hulls House located in Nova Scotia, Canada was designed by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects. It is sited on a glaciated terrain caressed by a cool maritime climate.

From up there you can see the sea, the coastline and admire the rogue waves.

It was specially designed for a family of four and because of that consists of a “day pavilion” and a “night pavilion”. It is composed of three structures, one consisting in a central core, another one in a side core and the last one in an entry foyer, a core and a kitchen.

It’s a steel framed house that resists as well to gravity loads and to wind uplift. The amazing thing is that the sea is permitted to pass under the building without damaging it due to the 32’ cantilevers and concrete fin foundations.

The construction also features concrete floors equipped with a geothermal heated hydronic system and an interior personalized by white volumes.
