Montreal's MU Architecture uses nature-based design to blend its Nook Residence into the breathtaking Canadian landscape. The gorgeous white home, located in Quebec, uses sharp angles and strategic openings to playfully integrate the structure into the seasons, contrasting with the green landscape in summer and blending into the white landscape in wintertime.
The home’s sharp angles and stark white facade mimic the steep terrain and snowy landscape that lead up to the lot. The structure is comprised of two asymmetrical volumes “twisted” onto each other in an origami-like style. The top level is strategically placed on the smaller lower level, providing solar shading for the large, south-facing terrace.
Large, floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over the adjacent Lake Memphremagog permit residents to enjoy the breathtaking natural surroundings from the living space. Polished concrete radiant flooring and walnut furniture further bring a nature-inspired elegance to the minimalistic interior design. An interior balcony and light Cedar-planked ceilings extend to the outside terrace, guiding the eye towards the breathtaking lake view.
