Name: Winona House
Designer: 25:8 Research + Design
Location: Ottawa, Canada
Winona House is a minimalist house located in Ottawa, Canada, designed by 25:8 Research + Design. Located in Westboro, an urban neighbourhood close to the Ottawa river, the house sits on the site of one of the original cottages built in the early 1900s when the area was still used for logging. When the current owners bought the property in 2009, they originally had the intention of expanding the 800 square foot house with a second storey addition, but a closer investigation of the foundation and interior structure revealed that the initial structure had deteriorated significantly over the years and could not be preserved.
