House In Quebec’s Wilds Would Suit A Lakeside Perch On The Road Up To Whistler

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) We’re going to go ahead and take this double triangle house away from its home-base in the wilds of south-eastern Quebec and reconstruct it in the woods overlooking one of the small lakes on the road up to Whistler. Designed by Jean Verville, the angle-loving private residence balances indoor and out with floor to ceiling sliding glass opening up to a patio sheltered by a cantilevered prism (rain, rain, go away). The interior is nothing if not playful in its minimalism with splashes of colour and bold furniture choices giving character to the clean lines. Built for a young professional couple with two young kids, it looks like a grand hideaway, and a great place to grow up in.
