Wood Duck Cabin By L’ABRI

Location, location, location. That cliche real estate refrain is cliche for a reason – it is true. The location of any property really dictates its worth – and in the case of the Wood Duck Cabin, it plays a large role in informing its very design.

Canadian architectural firm L’ABRI understood that with this kind of location there was no need to create some overbuilt conceptual sculpture of a home. Instead, they stuck with a simple two story structure, orienting it so as to allow the inhabitants to looks out of the large windows on the facade onto Mount Glen and the river in the valley below. The view, of course, goes both ways. The two building is filled with natural light from the main dining and living area on the first floor, right up to the open air second story that leads into the two bedrooms and bathroom. It is all the more fitting then that a home so influenced by its topography has an exterior with a hemlock siding that will, as time passes, obtain a patinated look.
