The Wooden Wing

The Wooden Wing is a large cottage on the shores of Lac Supérieur, in Quebec’s Laurentians.

New Quebec Residence

Lac-Supérieur Real Estate

The house is perched on a sizeable outcrop of granite bedrock, giving it a commanding yet intimate view of the lake and Mont Tremblant, on the other side.

Lac-Supérieur Home

The living spaces sit on a large, semi-polished concrete slab raised slightly above the natural outcrop, putting the house in close contact with its natural surroundings, from which it is separated by distinctive clear glass walls.

New Quebec Home

A white cedar roof – the wooden wing – boast ample eaves overhanging the glassed-in volume, protecting the living spaces from excessive direct sunlight and providing shelter for outdoor sitting areas, which extend the interior rooms organically.

Perpendicular to the wooden wing, a nearly opaque two-story volume holds the house’s service areas and bedrooms.

The house plays on the duality of openness and opacity, day spaces and night spaces.

The Wooden Wing

The use of a limited palette of materials – white cedar, polished concrete, black aluminum and clear glass – both inside and out helps erase the boundaries between architecture and nature.
