This stunning glass construction is the live/work studio of photographer Larry Williams located over a boathouse in Stony Lake, Ontario, Canada. Toronto based gh3 architects responded with this design to the desire of the owner for a place with lots of natural light, creating a almost completely transparent structure made of certified Sapphire glass, famous for its clarity.
The double-height space provide the photographer with unparalleled natural illumination, while the clarity of the glazing transforms the site and surrounding vistas into a sublime environment allowing to produce images unobtainable in a conventional studio. The house is equipped with an automatic blind system that creates a second aesthetic skin, isolating the interior for privacy and intimacy and transforming the exterior into a gently reflective mirror of the surroundings.
