The Sliding House, completed in 2008, is fabulous and unusual rental on Canada’s coast. A 1,700 square foot residence that was commissioned by creative directors David Peters and Rhonda Rubenstein and designed by architect Brian Mackay-Lyons of of MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects.
The Sliding House
Unusual on the outside, both for its sloping design -the home is placed on an eight degree slope and has views of the sea- and corrugated aluminum exterior, the inside is just as eye-catching with its beautifully designed and decorated interior (tons of photos shown later in the post).
The exterior is covered in industrial metal corrugated cladding. A thick north service wall containing stairs, baths, kitchen, hearth and storage protects the house from cold north winds.
It is available for weekly renting and sleeps four with its large master bedroom, loft area, fully equipped kitchen, enclosed fireplace, flatscreen TV, DVD player, and high-speed internet access.
The interior is entirely finished in unbleached clear poplar hardwood and is impeccably decorated with sophisticated furniture, modern lighting and high end appliances.
Nearby activities include whale-watching, horseback riding, sailing, golfing, fishing, fine dining and music and craft festivals depending upon the season.
Located in the coastal community of Upper Kingsberg in Canada, the home is a 90 minute drive from the Halifax airport.
