A stunning home overlooking British Columbia’s Soo Valley, SoLo represents an experiment in how to create environmentally sensitive single-family homes that are also strikingly beautiful. Crafted from warm Douglas fir, the mass timber prefab building even makes solar panels look great: A shimmering array of them lines the linear house’s facade. Inside, floor-to-ceiling windows and a wood-on-wood palette provide a cottagey feel. But this is more than a cabin in the woods — it’s residential architecture at its finest.
