Two boxes sit on a private peninsula projecting into a sheltered Atlantic Ocean cove. The west box, clad in black metal and vertical spruce siding, is a 600 square foot volume containing the main living area of Chester Cottage.

Upon approaching from the north, views directly through the west box reveal the ocean beyond. Oriented south-east with double height windows on 3 sides, this space is washed in sunlight throughout the day and enjoys panoramic ocean and forest views.

The cedar shingled east box contains the private spaces. Two guest rooms and a bath are sited for lush views into the trees. The main bedroom and ensuite project beyond the west box, closer to the water, to capture the sunrise and absolute privacy.

Designed for connection with nature, no fuss finishes and a limited palette allow the setting to take centre stage. Durable concrete floors throughout the cottage transition outside to a generous terrace, both materials a delight for bare feet.
