Cleanlined but cozy
There’s nothing rustic about this cabin in the woods. Designed
by Canadian firm Appareil
Architecture, the chic Chalet Grand-Pic is home to a couple who
wanted to spend their retirement years enjoying the Quebecois
forest. Good choice.
The prefab cabin is nestled into the woods and takes full
advantage of its picturesque surroundings with large windows and a
generous deck. The owners asked for a contemporary home that
deferred to its surroundings. The result is a simple gabled frame
that’s punched up with
trendy black corrugated metal siding.
Inside, the 1,464-square-foot house has two stories. The main
level has polished concrete floors, pale birch wood walls, and a
white wood paneled ceiling. Upstairs, the bedrooms are hidden by
painted white wood paneling that bucks the expectation of the
traditional open loft.
The house adheres to its strict color palette of pale wood,
white paint, gray concrete, and black accents. Some might call it
limiting, but we say it makes for a very stylish cottage,
