Cabot Cliffs



Located within the breathtaking Cape Breton landscape and nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the town of Inverness, the pro shop, clubhouse, and halfway hut buildings at Cabot Cliffs captivate the senses. Composed of precise shingled gable forms the buildings cluster to create intimate courtyards within this expansive rugged setting—each building framing spectacular views of the golf and ocean. The architecture is rooted within the vernacular gabled forms of Nova Scotia. The silver shingled walls and roofs scatter across this sand dune and fescue grass links golf course creating places of prospect and refuge within this spectacular landscape. A totemic masonry fireplace punctuates the clubhouse roof providing a cozy space to watch the course while linking earth to the vast sky.

The houses are similarly designed as village clusters, each space defined by a gabled roof creating a playful composition within the landscape. Expansive doors and windows open up to refreshing ocean breezes, living spaces, and spacious decks overlooking world class golf and sunsets. The modern vernacular aesthetic of this home underscores the idea that a large house can still feel like an airy seaside cottage.
