Bourgeois / Lechasseur Architects built this house in a small village of North Hatley in Quebec, Canada. When architects visited the place for the first time, they were charmed by the beautiful surroundings – a dense forest and the sound of the running water in the nearby stream. Clients wished the house to reflect the traditional style of the East Coast homes by the sea. So to make it look more that way, the house was covered with cedar siding and tin roof was applied. In order to bring the natural light and to let the dwellers enjoy the beautiful views, floor-to-ceiling black framed windows were added in the first floor. To contrast the living area, white colors were applied in the kitchen.
