Part of a luxury hillside housing project named Les Terrasses Cap-à-l’Aigle and located in the Cap-à-l’Aigle region of Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada, this stunning modern residence benefits from panoramic views over the St. Lawrence River and surrounding mountainscape. Known as Malbaie VI Marée Basse, the two story residential development was designed by Montreal-based studio Mu Architecture and completed last September. Occupying 3,200 square foot, the two volumes covered with cedar shingles are perfectly positioned for massive sunlight intake and provide the owners with beautiful panoramas from multiple vantage points.
A terrace captured in between these volumetric collection of spaces ensures the inhabitants stay strongly connected to the surroundings. Under the house’s green roof, bedrooms occupy the higher level and social spaces, the lower one. Here, on the ground floor, a red metal spiral staircase thrones in the middle, visually connecting the living/ dining /kitchen open floor plan. Cedar ceilings pierced by lights float over radiant concrete floors, creating a stunning effect and bounding the interior design together.
