This Nova Scotia residence by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects stands out along the shoreline even while competing against the breathtaking scenery. Two wood-clad appendages, inspired by ships, jut out over the cliffs to take in views of the ocean. The twin pavilions not only make the most of the surrounding landscape, but also create outdoor spaces between and beneath them protected from the elements. One of the volumes contains the living spaces, while the other contains all of the bedrooms, held together by a central atrium containing the entry foyer and the kitchen, all full of the same pale timber as the exterior.
