Standing on the slanting landscape of La Malbaie in Canada, the Chalet du Bois Flotté, designed by Eric Joseph Tremblay, imitates a piece of driftwood floating on a sea of snow between the sky and the neighbouring river.

As a nod to the first houses erected along St Lawrence Valley, the two connected buildings coming in the shape of a right angle are comprised of gabled roofs which rest atop of cuboid bodies. Donning a contemporary aesthetic, steel roofs juxtapose with the silver-tinted cedar claddings, which then extend to form the walls.

Featuring a minimalistic interior design, the structure is constructed with an entry point from the terrace and an immense glass wall granting the owner stunning views of Cap-à-l’Aigle and Malbaie River. Opting for a polished concrete to cover the floor, the chalet incorporates a slightly elevated platform to increase living space whereas the children’s rooms are located on the lower ground.
