A bunkhouse for lodging guests and an office space for remote working.
A generous lake-facing deck with space for a hammock and chairs.
Small footprint, located in an existing lakefront clearing.
Dorothy Lake Bunkie
A hybrid bunkhouse/office located on Dorothy Lake, Manitoba.
The project is located on a site with an existing cabin. The client requested a secondary building for remote working, as well as for lodging guests. The design includes two built-in twin bunk beds, a long wall-mounted wood worktable, and a living area.
The bunkie is situated in a small clearing on site and was limited to a small footprint. The angled shape of the building orients the views from the worktable towards the lake. The combination of angled walls and a generous roof overhang create a covered outdoor deck area.
Project in collaboration with Mary Furgale of Livwell Design.
