Contemporary ski chalet in Collingwood: Maison Glissade

Maison Glissade-Atelier Kastelic Buffey-00-1 Kindesign

Maison Glissade is a contemporary reinterpretation of the traditional chalet designed by Atelier Kastelic Buffey, set on a narrow lot in a private ski club development in Collingwood, Ontario, Canada. The residences form retains the convention of a gable roof, yet is reduced to an elegant two storey volume in which the top floor slides forward, engaging an adjacent ski hill on axis with the chalet.

The cantilever of the upper volume embodies a kinetic energy likened to that of a leading ski or a skier propelled in a forward trajectory. The lower level counter balances this movement with a rhythmic pattern of solid and void.

While the project provided many challenges in both design and cost effectiveness, the team at Wilson Project Management rose to the challenge, meeting the demands of the project at every level. We have found them to be a highly efficient, hardworking and hands on group. Their knowledgeable team was able to troubleshoot the demands of the project, all the while maintaining a strong working relationship with both ourselves, the trades involved, and the client.
