A Low Profile Maison That Would Fit Squamish As Well As It Does Nantes In France

With our city now so laughably unaffordable, thousands of Vancouverites are stuck imagining wonderful homes instead of living in them. “Spaced” is a record of our minds wandering the world of architecture and design, up and away from the unrewarding realities of shoebox condos, dark basement suites, and sweet fuck all on Craigslist.

(via) This secluded, wood-panelled, low profile house in the Vilaine Valley of North-Western France cleaves to its slope and brings in lots of light with carefully positioned windows. It has two bedrooms that connect to a central bathroom, and an open kitchen/living area with plenty of built in storage/seating. It also sports a wood-burning stove to cozy up to in winter and a broad concrete deck for sun-soaking in summer. Designed by Nantes-based firm Atelier Mima, we’d take ours in a deciduous forest clearing outside Squamish (with lots of flood insurance).
