Located in the heart of Charlevoix region, the Malbaie V residence is a wood building with green roof nestled into the hillside overlooking the stunning views of La Malbaie, the St. Lawrence River and the surrounding mountains.
The clear and simple external play of geometrical volumes embracing one another seems to arise from the steep terrain.
Inspiration from architect:
The upper and principal volume projects itself towards the river and sits on a lower and embedded volume. The house is fully covered with a green roof that facilitates its integration into the landscape and acts as an insulating layer as well as helping reduce heat build-up in summer. The wooden claddings reinforce the contrast between the two volumes and favors harmony with nature.
