This family holiday home consists of two sister constructions oriented towards the scenic views of the Baie-des-Chaleurs in Canada. The project, named “Les Jumelles”, is an architectural insertion in the context of Caraquet, a historical Acadian Village.
“The sister houses, common to Acadian architecture, stand parallel to each other and are only connected by a glazed passage that acts as a working space offering a panoramic view on the sea,” explains the developing team at YH2 Architecture. The length of this passage offers a good amount of privacy between volumes, while also defining a sunbathed courtyard protected from the often violent winds of the region.
Sober and stripped down architecture defines the two sister homes, which are located not far from the sea shore. The first dwelling, largely fenestrated on its south facade, contains the living spaces, while its twin, open on its north end, regroups the bedrooms and the garage. All interiors are minimalist with large windows flooding them in natural light. Wooden frames and furniture add a welcoming touch. [Photos courtesy of YH2 Architecture]
