INTO THE WILD is an über-modern residential project on 2.3 acres of undeveloped land in the heart of Saint John, NB. designed by Acre Architects in close collaboration with the homeowners (us! Judith Mackin + Robert Moore). International Architecture and Design magazine is doing a several-issue series on the project, following it from the early stages of design through to completion.
