The interior of locally milled poplar contrasts with the home’s metal exterior. Thanks to the six-degree pitch of the site, the dining area leads directly to the yard, while the living room ends with a balcony that’s high above the ground.  Photo 3 of 13 in Lights Will Guide You Home

Side Yard, Exterior, Slope, Field, Metal Siding Material, and House Building Type Imagined as a jewel box on a hill, Sliding House takes the place of a barn that once stood on this Nova Scotia site. Its form follows the slope of the land, while the windows are parallel with the horizon, setting up a tension between a plumb interior and a slanted exterior.
