THIS CABIN IS A MEETING OF OLD AND NEW

It Was Designed to Distinguish What’s Traditional and What’s Modern

This lakeside cabin in Lanaudière, Quebec is not new. In fact, the cabin has been with its owners for almost 40 years. What’s new in this already beautiful structure is the addition of another level and the expansion of the original cabin. However, wanting to preserve the rustic and traditional aesthetic of the original cabin, the architects did not change the old cabin and instead added a contemporary volume made out of dark-stained cedar to serve as its second floor. The roof was also changed to accommodate this new feature.

While the outside looks rustic and dark, the inside of the cabin is brightly lit with the numerous windows letting in natural light. The interiors are also made of white walls and pale wood accents making it look more spacious. The cabin is massive having a living room, den, office, dining room, and kitchen. There is also a master’s bedroom and two other bedrooms on the additional floor.
As beautiful as this cabin is, it is unfortunately not for sale.

Ample glazing provides generous views of the surrounding landscape, including tall pines and starry night skies. “This promontory offers an exceptional view of the lake and an opening to the sky that did not exist on the ground floor,” the team said.
