The Rabbit Snare Gorge house, constructed by Omar Gandhi Architect and Design Base 8 bureaus in Canada, is located off-road in the forests, far across the city noise. The structural shape reminds of a sharp pointed tower with two viewing platforms, overlooking the ocean and the valley. The first floor is occupied by a bedroom; the second one contains a two-level space formed by a dining room and a kitchen, whereas the third level accommodates a living room and a viewing platform facing the surrounding landscape. The house`s structure has several elements, typical for the local architecture. Traditional wooden panels are used for the external facing and steel construction around the house reminds of windbreaks, popular at coastal settlements.
