ACDF Architecture was hired by a large family to add more space to their traditional house in Saint-Donat-de-Montcalm, Canada. Surrounded by birch trees, Chalet La petite soeur expands with a new extension that connects to the original house via a glass bridge. The all-white addition rests atop a concrete base with a shape that resembles the main structure. The dramatic juxtaposition of the two volumes makes for an overall striking exterior while respecting the natural surroundings.
The main floor features floor-to-ceiling windows that allow for uninterrupted views of Lake Ouareau. Natural wood elements are paired with polished concrete floors and black wood slats for a clean and cozy, modern interior space.
The bridge is framed in oak wood driving eyes to peek through to the original space on the other side.
