The Pole House – Manitoba

Located in the remote, dense forest in the Manitoba Interlake, North of Winnipeg, Pole House is surrounded by a limestone bedrock covered by a layer of overburden. Because of the low profile of the area, the permeable overburden leads to large quantities of flowing groundwater. Compounded with the cold climate, the ground is a cataclysm of freezing and thawing: a nightmare for the material integrity of concrete footings. The interior of the year-long cottage is of a bold, conceptual nature. The structure of the home is left exposed showing off its wood frame skeleton, and plywood sheathing. Completely genuine and visible, the structure and materials are almost constructivist in nature with their raw presentation.
