Smith House, located at the AIA National Honor Award winning Shobac Farm, embodies many contradictions. Simultaneously new, 400-years-old, and timeless; clearly contemporary and unapologetically traditional; deeply rural and surprisingly urban. Designed by internationally-renowned architect Brian MacKay-Lyons, Smith House is the most exquisite estate, encompassing the finest materials, technology and views. The homesite meticulously planned over a two-acre, double lot that allows for expansion and 230+ feet of ocean frontage consists of three pavilions, made absolutely modern through their cladding and minimalist detailing, perched on a stone acropolis, like a ruin protected by Corten steel roofs. The interior space is punctuated by structural steel frames at 12 centres, establishing the rhythm of the space. The polished concrete floor is contrasted by the white ash plywood ceiling. Window heads are at 7 feet, to frame the ocean and surrounding hills and cliffs, editing out the sky. At dusk, the water bounces the sunsets glow up into the space. A stunning 16 foot granite fireplace with 10 tonne mantle stone dominates the living space. Natural ventilation predominates, cross breezes through operable triple-glazed doors and window vents make the most of the areas relatively mild winters and summers. Super-insulated walls offer energy efficiency, a hydronic system heats the floors. Furniture is custom-designed and crafted for the home; a granite wine cellar is hidden beneath the kitchen, accessed by a secret trap door and staircase. The magnificent outdoor space is punctuated with locally quarried 6'' Nova Scotian granite veneer and pavers, an outdoor kitchen and infinite heated spa pool. Smith House has received dozens of awards and global recognition including: Plan Award Finalist; Architizer Awards, A+Awards Finalist (2020); Residential Design Architecture Awards (2020) just to name a few.
