You’ll be hard pushed to find a cosier getaway than The Lookout at Broad Cove Marsh by Omar Gandhi Architect. The luxury cabin is sandwiched between the ocean and a tree-lined country road on the outskirts of Inverness, Cape Breton Island, Canada.

The 2000 ft2 property is built around a corridor that runs parallel to the length of the building, private spaces stem from this central corridor. The south-west face of the home provides views of the dramatic Atlantic Ocean through floor-to-ceiling windows.

The architect, Omar Gandhi was briefed that the property was to be a getaway with the purpose of bringing family together. To cater to this, the design mixes private and communal space fluently. The property is by-and-large an open space, perfect for get-togethers, but private space is not short, with three pod-like structures delineating the main corridor and acting as bedrooms and bathrooms.

The wooden boards used throughout the property provide a traditional feel which contrasts with the jet black detailing and the concrete slab flooring, giving a more modern aesthetic – the best of both worlds.
