True North House By Alain Carle Architecte

Category: Living

If architecture is the art of building, designing and conceptualizing with purpose, then the True North project by Montreal-based Alain Carle Architecte is a testament to its practice. The home is as much a technological wonder as it is a dwelling and shares more than just a foundation with the surrounding landscape.

Built amidst the opening to the Saint Lawrence Seaway, the single-family residence appears to rise straight from its desolate surroundings. The home is comprised of board-formed concrete, black metal adornment, and takes shape through a dizzying number of angular modules. The foundation is built upon a man-made landscape that serves as a large waterfront, originally designed as part of a generic development plan. The interior of the dwelling plays host to three guest bedrooms, a foyer, modern and minimalist kitchen area, bathroom, and a tastefully decorated master suite. Industrial materials and muted colors set the tone for the home, combining grey and black walls, concrete floors, and dark wood accents that truly compliment the chilling atmosphere.
