Each week, we tap into Dwell's Instagram community to bring you the most captivating design and architecture shots of the week.

Sent to us by Toronto-based architectural photography studio @revelateur_to, the photo reveals how the modern cedar and glass construction fits seamlessly into its surroundings.
