Clean architectural details and expansive windows keep distractions to a minimum, keeping the focus on this home's spectacular views of the Bay of Fundy.
This modern house in New Brunswick, Canada sits high on a rocky ledge overlooking the Bay of Fundy. Designed by architect Julie Snow of Minneapolis, the house consists of two layers, cantilevered over the granite ledge to which it is anchored. Inside, the house receives abundant sunshine through floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors, as the sun’s low angle in the winter reaches deep into the house. Minimal in the extreme, the house has few creature comforts built in, but is rich in solitude, natural beauty and almost unrestricted views over a spectacular landscape. I was asked to shoot this house by a magazine with a spring deadline. That meant it had to be shot in the winter. Try as I might, I could not convince the magazine to delay the shoot until spring when conditions would be more friendly. So we shot it in mid winter, and it was a brutal experience. Snow shoes, high winds, sub zero temperatures and a thin layer of ice over knee deep snow made for an unforgettably difficult shoot. But it was worth it!
