Quebecois firm MU Architecture created a rural home design that makes the building appear to blend into its wintry surroundings.

Sitting upon a snow-covered landscape, the 'Nook Residence' hosts a beautiful modern interior and a clean minimalist look both inside and out. Though the house appears small from the outside, its rooms are made to seem expansive through it's open-concept layout.

Concrete floors, white walls, lightly colored wooden ceilings and large windows maximize every corner of the space. Included is a slender fireplace that sits in the corner of the living room near the window, allowing inhabitants to look out onto the snowy landscape and as they cuddle up cozily on the couch. A flight of stairs leads to the spacious basement of the home, which includes two bedrooms and a dormitory that comfortably fits four people.
