Skiff Cove Residence Begins Construction

Construction on the 2900 sf Skiff Cove House has begun. The new home overlooks Lake Ontario from atop a 20 ft high limestone cliff that runs the length of Skiff Cove in Prince Edward County. The form was derived from the client's desire to get as near to the edge as possible, while still providing protection from the crashing waves, the wind off the lake, and a private courtyard setting. The house focuses views our to the lake, and provides a second floor vantage point for the office to be used as the clients transition from their Toronto home to retire in the County.

Francis continues to teach at Centennial College as a professor of various courses in the Sustainable Architecture Program. He is also slated to teach the new CaGBC LEED Associate Course at the Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD). Lastly, the U.S. Green Building Council (the parent corporation of the CaGBC) has asked Francis to be a USGBC Education Reviewer. This means he will be involved in the review and accreditation of new LEED courses offered by third parties across North America.
