The Malbaie V Residence by MU Architecture is an incomparable forest getaway. If you want breathtaking views and a modern hideaway surrounded by gorgeous scenery then this is the perfect escape.

MU architecture constructed this project in Charlevoix, Canada, and its simple and wooden designs appear to blend in with the terrain. This camouflaging haven has a roof that is completely covered with grass and moss, which insulates the building in the hot summer by cutting back the heat.

The facade is made out of red cedar from British Columbia, and the lower element of the house has been dyed a darker hue. This house is the perfect place to grow old in when one can live in seclusion with panaromatic views of the jaw-dropping river and rolling hills.
