High House By Delordinaire

Mar 16, 2017

Category: Living

Typically, cold weather homes conjure up a pretty specific image. Things like stout log cabins in the middle of the woods or elaborate chalets in the mountains. What people don’t generally think of is stark minimalist homes on stilts. But this architectural wonder from Delordinaire makes us think that perhaps they should.

Appropriately dubbed High House, this abode can be found in the snowy hills of Quebec, Canada. Its heavy duty stilts, which were inspired by those used on homes in flood zones and warmer climates, lift the house off the rolling topography to create a protected ground floor area with an outdoor stove. They also serve to give the home an uninterrupted view of the Mont Saint Anne ski resort – which can be enjoyed thanks to the large and welcoming windows that adorn the structure. And although the interior is sparse, the sunlight that pours into this minimalist home make it as warm and welcoming as any classic log cabin.
