May House: a northern hideaway

A new volume of contemporary rural retreats features FBM's May House among 29 other projects from renowned Canadian design firms. 'Northern Hideaways: Canadian Cottages and Cabins' celebrates holiday houses from across Canada's contemporary architectural landscape.

May House, completed in 2020, is located in Mahone Bay on Nova Scotia's popular South Shore. The home evokes a sense of prospect and refuge and quietly celebrates the simple pleasures of sunlight, fresh air, and nature.

The curated selection will be released later in June this year from The Images Publishing Group—a world-leading publisher of books on architecture, art, photography, and design. May House photography by Julian Parkinson.
