13 Kitchens with Killer Views

Charles Gane Cottage kitchen and Douglas fir island.

Clad in a rich wood palette, architect Charles Gane’s summer cottage on the Georgian Bay draws all its energy needs from a mighty solar array. The home maintains remarkable material consistency, with Douglas fir cladding the beams, kitchen countertop, and interior walls. The open-plan kitchen absorbs views of the lake through an expansive glass wall.
