Discipline : Interior Design : Grand Winner
Categories : Residence / Cottage & Country House : Gold Certification, Platinum Winner
The inspiration for this architectural design comes from a visit to the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, where every building seems to have left a footprint in the adjacent structure, inviting visitors to continue moving from one space to the next. In this case, each room—although clearly delimited by French doors with a magnificently detailed wooden frame—remains closely connected to the next through its floor and wall treatments. That was the inspiration for the rustic cedar shakes in the kitchen, for instance, which echo the veranda’s treatment.
The choice of materials also came quite naturally, starting with the very first step onto the property. Much of the ground was covered in slate, and that same stone ended up being featured in various applications inside and outside the house. In fact, it is slate that gives the interior doors their bluish colour.
Boasting a wooden structure that meshes seamlessly with the architectural design and an ingenious interplay of volumes, this lavish home is just steps from the Mont Bromont ski trails, making it an inviting refuge for kicking back or enjoying the great outdoors—all in perfect harmony with the natural surroundings.
