BESIDE CHALETSYear : 2021
Location : Lanaudière (Qc), Canada
The main cabin’s volume draws from the collective imaginary of the cabin in the trees, of the welcoming home.
Here perched in the trees, there sitting in the hollow of a hill, each model is designed to highlight the site, minimize its footprint on the ground, and offer unique experiences.
The space is enveloped by generous panoramic windows that invite the forest and the landscape in.
The benches as well as the sofa, imagined by APPAREIL Atelier, host an apparent-wood structure, proposing legs that are massive and rhythmed.
Continuing in the spirit of raw materials, APPAREIL Atelier participated to create a collection of lamps designed by Lambert & Fils that lend a unique ambiance to the space, by using aluminum tubes with a textured surface whose patina is highlighted.
The project inscribes itself in an integration between architecture and nature, where the landscape is highlighted through each intervention, veritable return to essentials and to contemplation.
