Architectural firm Superkül have designed the Stealth Cabin, located in Bracebridge, Ontario.
The design set out to make a small footprint home that married the warmth of a traditional log cabin with clean lines and energy efficiency. Designed to nestle into the existing topography of the site, the sculptural form of the cabin takes its cues from the rise and fall of the land, and the form of an overturned boat found on the property. A small environmental footprint was paramount to the clients. The cabin is sited to preserve the maximum number of living trees, and take advantage of the prevailing breezes for passive cooling. The cabin and the radiant heating system were designed so that the north half of the cabin could be closed off when not in use, to reduce energy consumption. Hot exhaust air from the high efficiency fireplace is ducted under the concrete floor slab
