Chic Penthouse-Style Cabins
This Renovated Georgian Bay Cottage by Altius Architecture is Flawless

By: Michael Hemsworth (Superstar) Apr 9, 13

When one thinks about a cottage, a number of different characteristics come to mind like rustic and ‘lived in,’ but this renovated cabin overlooking Georgian Bay in Northern Ontario, Canada by Altius Architecture is more refined than other’s one might find in the surrounding area.

Built in the 1970s, the cabin itself has a rather post-modern aesthetic as it is semi-circle shaped and rooted on top of a massive granite escarpment. The renovation by the Altius Architecture team has seen the original floor plan kept,  yet the entire interior has been revamped in a manner that makes it look like a fashionable city penthouse.

It’s interesting to see how the family cabin by the lake has evolved from shabby to chic and this renovation project by the Altius Architecture team is a prime example.
