The House on Limekiln Line is an off-grid 875 ft2 house built on a 25 acre rural lot in Huron County, Ontario, Canada. The exterior form and materiality of the house are informed by the local agricultural vernacular. The house is organized as a monolithic steel clad shell with extended south porch overhang enclosing a vaulted open interior. Careful siting, generous threshold spaces and strategic views into and through the house encourage stewardship and appreciation of the annually and diurnally shifting landscape beyond.
