The architect Jean-Christophe Gaudreault-Fortier joined forces with his brother to build this chalet near Sainte-Marguerite-du-Lac-Masson, in a sober and contemporary style.

Nestled on the edge of a wooded lot, with no neighbours, it was named “Chalet des Montagnards” because of its anchorage in nature. “The interior spaces are open to the forest, varied, offering a different spectacle depending on the angle and the seasons”, describes the architect in his portfolio.

Note the white metal roof and cedar siding, and an aspiring design to the peaks. This is also what we find inside, with the open area of ​​the ground floor and its 13 feet in height. The area is not huge (117 m⁠2), but everything has been done with a view to optimizing the space and preserving the privacy of the occupants. Upstairs, there are two small bedrooms and, even higher, a multifunctional mezzanine. Of course, such a frame lent itself to large windows to establish a link with the outside. The mountain dweller also wants to be peaceful and cozy, with strong soundproofing, a heated concrete slab, while waiting to be able to relax on the pleasant terrace in summer.
