For the past seven months, sit-ins at a range of offices–from California Governor Jerry Brown’s to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s–had followed a similar pattern: show up, sing songs, get led away in handcuffs for disrupting the peace.

Designed by architect Roch Bélair and designer Nathalie Tremblay of Atelier Cachet, this family retreat on Ramsey Lake in Sudbury, Ontario is the winner of the Living Space Global Award, part of The International Design Awards 2018.
