Lake Winnipeg House
Location: Gimli, MB, Canada
Status: Under construction; anticipated completion 2016
Situated on a wooded site adjacent to the the white sand beaches of Gimli, Manitoba, Lake Winnipeg House boasts commanding views over
one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the world. By winter, this view radically transforms as the lake completely freezes over
and becomes a shimmering plain of luminous white ice.
This multi-generational retreat features a large lake-facing roof terrace which offers panoramic views, a wrap-around wood terrace at the main level, and a monumental chimney feature, clad in local Tyndall limestone, which links multiple hearths on both levels of the house.
