This secluded forest getaway is situated in the Laurentian Mountains, Québec. Montreal-based architecture firm Atelier Boom-Town's blueprints for this hidden and cozy structure are heavily influenced by the sloped site. The house is designed with modernity in mind, as the sleek blackened wood facade gives the dwelling an elegant look. The stacked volumes of the two levels add an interesting abstract flair, making the forest getaway's design recognizable from afar.
Atelier Boom-Town optimizes the open space and window panes in the structure of the forest getaway to make the most of the scenic surroundings. The two-storey building boasts a birds-eye-view of the nearby mountain lake and this serves as "the backbone for the development of this architectural concept."
