Alain Carle Architecte Renovated a Structure from the 1960s

Located in rural Quebec, this refurbished chalet is bound to offer residents a secluded and cozy experience of the Laurentians region. Dubbed 'Résidence Maribou,' the almost 60-year-old structure has been revived by Montreal-based architecture studio Alain Carle Architecte.

Before the restoration project began, the dwelling was in dire condition as "its structure, insulation, and cladding were all compromised." Recognizing the charm and the homey nature of the property, however, the owners did not have the heart to tear the house down.

The refurbished chalet boasts a reconfigured layout as the main entrance has been moved to be closer to the driveway. To accurately match the historic aesthetic of the dwelling, Alain Carle Architecte selected the interior to "reference mid-century Scandinavian design," as the house itself has distinct roots in the movement.
