The essence of the space has been completely transformed by the project of this 120 square meters apartment which was previously charcterized by narrow and dark rooms.

L’Accostée House in Adstock, Canada by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectes

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

Article source: v2com

L’Accostée House is located in the Adstock area, on the shores of Lac St-François. The clients have lived on this beautiful site for a few years and enjoy aquatic activities on the lake. Since their original house was in poor condition and becoming too small for their growing family, they decided to rebuild while preserving the natural surroundings and keeping the open space on the edge of the lake. They wanted a warm, friendly house that would respect the environment and open onto the lake.

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

Article source: v2com

This 20-foot-wide wood frame townhouse, located at the end of a row along a narrow side yard, had existing front and rear extensions. The building volume was selectively manipulated—in some cases through addition, in others through subtraction—to improve room sizes, sequences and adjacencies. Generously sized skylights, window walls and glazed corners were employed to make the most of available natural light.
