The Bromont Residence is a compact 2700 square meter cabin built of natural materials in Quebec. Clad in wooden cladding, it also boasts a cedar cathedral ceiling within. This material palette not only integrates the building within the forested environment, but it also suits the vernacular architecture of the eastern townships.

Despite its woodland aesthetic, the cabin meets all of the standards of a contemporary residence with cantilevering window boxes that foster soul-searching and solitude. But it does this without an undue environmental footprint. Wide windows bring in daylighting, mitigating the need for artificial lighting, and the home is oriented to maximum winter sun while minimizing summer time solar gain.
