Architectural firm NatureHumaine renovated an existing residence located in Rimouski, Quebec, Canada Bic National Park. The result is this modern minimal single family house. The project was completed in 2015.
“Clients are owners of a small house located on the heights of the village they desire extend while retaining a trace of its presence. Their changing needs lead to completely transform the original house. In a L, two volumes of wood and steel are juxtaposed to the existing volume coated bricks, now contains the entry and living room.” – NatureHumaine
“The first volume host the kitchen on the ground floor. The second includes the bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs. South side, the two overlapping boxes advance towards the forest edge allowing to arrange a terrace garden. At the junction of three boxes, flooded areas of light are created by the double height volumes.” – NatureHumaine
“Structuring the internal space, they offer extensive vertical frames on the landscape. Inside, a palette composed of gray, black and blue connected by cedar wood elements composes a visual and geometric continuity between the living spaces.” – NatureHumaine
