At our first meeting, the clients spoke of simplicity and an open view of the woods. They wanted a house that “looks like a house.” They preferred a more traditional style, reminiscent of East Coast homes by the sea, standing like cedar-shingled “lighthouses,” standing strong against the storms. These houses seem to rise up to view the horizon. From the beginning, we could see that they were open to contemporaneity and boldness, even though they wished to retain the traditional country style of North Hatley’s early homes. This duality between the traditional and the modern was our guide throughout the design.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsWhen we first visited the property, we were charmed by the dense, leafy forest and deer close by. The property is bordered by a stream, and the sound of the water is both soothing and inspiring. It is located at the end of a mountainous domain, close to the heart of the village of North Hatley. The winding ‘’Méandres’’ road leads to the property, and the project is nestled in one of its sharp curves.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsUpon approach, the house has a strong presence, but its build and size give it a traditional look. Wandering through the property, the cedar seems to step back, allowing the indoors to mingle with the outdoors. It is almost like a boat that has come to rest on the banks of a bend in the river. The house is nestled into the side of the mountain, as if it slid, stopping just before the chasm. The main floor literally opens into the forest, and the upper level seems to float above it. The screened-in room, a continuation of the glass wall, reaches toward the forest, drawing the stream closer.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsThe KL house’s natural cedar siding and tin roof are reminiscent of some of North Hatley’s country homes. However, its elongated and streamlined shape contrasts subtly with the older, opulent homes on the shore of the lake. The house, and its adjacent garage, have a simple and well-assumed volumetry and a slanted roof with a small overhang, but this simplicity is destabilized by subtle shaping. The overhanging upper level covers the porch and terrace, protecting the windowed rooms on the main floor from the summer heat.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe absence of mouldings highlights the authentic character of the natural cedar shingles. The trimmed area’s smooth cedar planks provide a contrast to the textured shingles. In both cases, cedar shingles were chosen for their orange hue, which adds a touch of warmth to the project. Bold, wide openings along the siding frame the inner scenery.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsThe entrance hall leads to a bright transition area that opens up vertically, providing a glimpse of the upper level and its cedar ceiling. The living areas flow through an open, longitudinal space that offers a constant view of the forest. Dark trims around the windows enliven the home’s long facade. This linear movement continues and folds indoors to house the living room. A change in shape creates the library and the foyer. This darker area contrasts nicely with the white walls and lustrous furniture. The wood floors add a soft quality to the project. The open staircase invites the occupants to climb up. The upstairs walls are covered in cedar slats. An office area and long, low storage furnish the space. The bedrooms and bathroom are simple and discrete, each one providing a partial view of the landscape. A very large window in the master bedroom offers a glimpse of the lake through the trees.Save this picture!Floor PlanIn response to the clients’ wishes, the KL house looks “like a house” but also sets itself apart, in all simplicity, by re-interpreting the region’s early country homes. It also has a friendly maritime feel, far from the Atlantic.Save this picture!© Adrien WilliamsProject gallerySee allShow lessArchDaily’s Top 20 Most Read Articles of 2015ArticlesTEN Arquitectos Selected to Design Luxury Resort for the Cayman IslandsArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/778567/kl-house-bourgeois-lechasseur-architectes Clipboard CopyHouses•North Hatley, Canada CopyAbout this officeBourgeois / Lechasseur architectesOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNorth HatleyCanadaPublished on December 16, 2015Cite: “KL House / Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectes” 16 Dec 2015.
