House on Limekiln Line – Off-Grid Home by Studio Moffitt

Studio Moffitt designed and managed construction of the House on Limekiln Line. Built on a 25-acre (10-hectare) farm lot in Huron County, Ontario, the off-grid home of 875 ft² (81m²) was completed in 2011.

The exterior form and materiality of the house are informed by the local agricultural vernacular. The house is organized as a monolithic steel clad shell with extended south porch overhang enclosing a vaulted open plan. Careful siting, generous threshold spaces and strategic views into and through the house ensure stewardship and appreciation of the annually and diurnally shifting landscape beyond.
