In the small town of Sutton, Quebec lies a cozy cottage integrated seamlessly with the landscape as if nature had a hand in making the marvelous modern retreat. The Paul Bernier architect studio created this weekend home as a contemporary ski retreat for one lucky family.
The home offers shelter for cars, presenting a drive-thru style cover which also protects the structure from water spilling down the mountain when the snow melts away. Covering the outer walls of this cottage are beautiful black cedar planks in a vintage horizontal pattern creating a tranquil rhythm with the vertical lumber. Inside the retreat are white wooden walls, contrasting the exterior, black steel window frames, and polished concrete floors. Utilizing the steep slope, the home has two levels on the southern end with spacious windows overlooking Mount Sutton and beyond. The roof is covered with grass, allowing the cottage to blend in further with nature. There’s also a covered terrace right outside the kitchen, dining room, and lounge so you can enjoy a warm cup of coffee or sink into a book with nature as your dedicated companion.
