The art of exterior home

A home and guest house on the Magdalen Islands

A few weeks back I went to lunch with a team of supervisors from function and a single of them who occurs to be incredibly French, was talking about how wonderful les Îles-de-la-Madeleine are, or as the English people contact them, the Magdalen Islands. I had someway never ever listened to this this modest archipelago before, located in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence (and even though element of Québec, the islands are in point nearer to the Maritime provinces and Newfoundland). A outrageous coincidence that about a 7 days ago though I was perusing the portfolio of Montréal architecture company La Lose (that I am admittedly obsessed with) I came across a project in their portfolio known as Les Rochers, located on the southernmost island of the Magdalens, identified as l’île du Havre Aubert. La Drop intended a solitary spouse and children dwelling and visitor property in this breathtaking placing. Encouraged by the common gabled home, the architects are proposing a modern day model whose asymmetrical shape is a nod to the Maison des Îles and its drum. Each in their possess way, the two residences combine the drum into the home, unified in a one volume. The inside architecture of the two residences is imbued with the aesthetics of seaside houses. The inside design is meticulous, but remains sober. The guest household is like a vacation dwelling reminiscent of the rusticity of fishermen’s huts, the ambiance is calm. The principal house is larger and far more refined. The line do the job is prosperous and fragile, providing depth and texture to the interiors. Architects generate a balanced language for relaxing interiors.
