The feeling of a not often seen vacation home emanates from the space. An unchanged place, frozen in time, thanks to an astute use of wood, nobly built. Expressed in exterior cladding, structure, indoor paneling, indoor and outdoor flooring and in furniture; everything showcases the best uses of wood.
The rot-proof cedar for framing, the pinewood studs from the local mill voluntarily showing as ceiling, wall finishes and the white oak for the floors combine to form a wooden kingdom that considers the climatic realities of the four seasons of the year. The exterior architecture is inclusive to the interior design, which remains autonomous and uses the frame of the building to create integrated furniture.
While being in communion with nature, the all-window facade marks the link between the lake and the residence. A profitable transparency that is nourished by the sun in winter, and the trees’ coolness in summer. An elegant, peaceful haven that brings back the true essence of a cottage.
