The Remote Island Retreat Handmade with Love

 

A brilliant collaboration between Architect – Battersby Howat, Designer – Nelson Design, and a group of craftsmen – the Hinterland Crew, this beautiful minimalist shack was completed from the ground up in just 5 weeks, including all site work, assembly of the prefab framing, mill work, cabinetry and finishes. Sited at a serene hillside among Douglas fir trees, the shack is entirely off grid, powered by solar energy and depended on filtered rainwater for everyday use.

This simple getaway was conceived as a tilted box, with black-stained cedar siding running perpendicular to the roofline. The interior is covered in saw-cut, white-stained plywood, with a long banquette on one side, a kitchen on the other, and a sleeping loft above. An outdoor shower and soaker tub perched on the edge of the hilltop to maximize panoramic views of the Strait of Georgia and the surrounding mountains.
