Floating Over The Ocean: Small home facing out towards the Atlantic Ocean appears to effortlessly float over the surface of the water

20 May, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

Teetering over the edge of small, rocky hill with the reeds swaying in the wind, this small, yet bizarre building has some of the best views around. Facing out towards the coastline and the Atlantic sea, this amazing house is located on the edge of Nova Scotia in Canada and has views of the mountains from the rear and views of the sea from the front. Developed by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects this house was designed as a simple and quiet retreat that creates a very unusual illusion of it floating over the ocean due to its protruding front. Built as a home for the weekend for a family that runs between California and Nova Scotia, this simple house made of wood and steel is the ideal place to get away and disconnect from the hectic lifestyle.
