The Wooden Wing

Architecture | 14 Feb 2018

ORGANIC PROTECTION

 

A cottage on Lac Supérior’s shores, in Canada. This is how The Wooden Wing defines itself, with studio YH2`s architecture, a house placed on a granite bedrock and with a privileged view not only to the lake, but also to Mont Tremblant. It connects naturally to its surroundings: The separation is made through clear glass walls. The frontier between nature and the house was subtly designed, through a “limited palette of materials”: white cedar, polished concrete, glass and black aluminum.
The white cedar roof – the “wooden wing” – overhangs the volume and protects the living areas from excessive light, and “providing shelter for outdoor sitting areas, which extend the interior rooms organically”. Perpendicularly there is an “opaque two-story volume”, where one can find the bedrooms and the service areas.
