Cantilevered in the woods

You know your friends would be bugging you constantly to spend boring winter weekends at your cabin if this was yours. And in the summer? Absolutely! Another perfectly executed home by _naturehumaine. Having bought a beautiful plot of wooded land in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, the client dreamt of building a country house that would be in perfect symbiosis with its natural environment. The house is characterized by two stacked volumes; a wooden clad volume anchored into the mountain supports a cantilevering ground floor volume above. This gable roofed volume raised into the air gives the sensation that the house is floating amongst the trees. Vast views of Mount Orford and the valley below are framed by a long horizontal strip window. The kitchen and master bathroom are carved out of a black volume at the center of the house dividing living spaces from the master bedroom.

Colour blocks

A simple modern family home with mid century riffs. Mono-pitch roof, walls of glass, colour blocks and sunken lounge. It's about catching the sun and taking in the views. Sleeping zones at either end of the 4m wide building are connected by living areas that open to a sunny patio. Easterbrook House in Titirangi, Auckland by Dorrington Atcheson Architects.
