A HIDDEN HOUSE IN THE LANDSCAPE
The Nook Residence is a wonderful house that is in perfect continuity with the landscape in which it is part. Turning its back to the street, Nook offers a virtually blind facade that encourages discovery and piques curiosity. Inside, the sequence of open spaces on the ground floor unveils different views of Lake Memphremagog, while the abundant windows erase the boundaries between inside and outside. The sobriety of the materials used, such as the black tiles and the walnut furniture, punctuates the space with elegance. Located in a quiet area of Eastern Quebec, this house adapts to the seasons and combines with the lush summer and the winter landscape.
