Chalet Lac Champlain by Boom Town, Quebec
Quebec-based architectural practice Boom Town has designed the Chalet Lac Champlain project. The contemporary chalet is located close to Lake Champlain in Quebec, Canada.
This cottage is located near Lake Champlain, a few meters away from the American border at the height of the Phillipsburg Bird Sanctuary.
According to the architects: “The landscape is composed of two plateaus separated by a 10 meter sheer cliff and of a gentle slope access to the lake; a rare privilege for this area. This land form offers a wonderful sight line to the west facing this vast lake.
“This three-storey cottage acts as an observation post on the natural settings. The vertical circulation in the cottage creates views both on the cliff, on which the building almost leans, and the lake; thinly veiled by tree trunks. All the rooms boast windows.
“Two large terraces, on the superior level on the south side allow the occupants to live in the landscape and to pursue their thoughts. Those terraces induce segmentation of the volumes already separated by a subtle offset between the south, north and central parts (where the stairs are). This play in the volume is accentuated by colour variation or by the installed wood covering.”
