La Luge Winter Retreat by YH2 Yiacouvakis Hamelin
Lying in the midst of the forest in Quebec, surrounded by dense vegetation, La Luge is a 120 sqm winter home that integrates a private spa.
Canadian architectural design firm YH2 created two embracing volumes set on different levels, one of the bright wrapped with a wood shell made of essences of cedar, oak, and walnut.

Inspiration from architect:
While La Luge is as a compact scheme meant to accommodate a large number of guests, the house’s spaces can be reconfigured into diverse geometries: using large sliding doors, the users may transform the children bedroom into a playground or a guest bedroom, more or less opened onto the main living spaces.
