Raising the roof

Unique builds
Shanty-chic
By Quentin Casey

“Shantih,” designed by Omar Gandhi Architect Inc., is located in Hunts Point, a small Nova Scotia beach town. “The clients required that their new cottage engage the landscape, have a modest and hidden façade facing the road and provide a venue for their ever-growing extended family,” Gandhi says of the design.

The exterior of Shantih is composed of lightly stained eastern white cedar shingles, fine horizontal slats, exposed poplar soffits and stainless steel chimneys.
