Chalet Bolton-Est is a stunning two story contemporary vacation home project designed by Atelier BOOM TOWN, located in East Bolton, Quebec, Canada. The clients vision for the design of the home was abundant light, open space, a fluid inside-outside relationship, views, framing and integration of the pavilion into the landscape. All expressed in a simple means and forms. This young couple with two young boys had just purchased a beautiful property in the East Bolton area. The home consists of 1,600 square feet of living space with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, mud room, living room, kitchen, dining room.

Undergrowth inviting to walk, two small cabins cedar shingles, relics of the previous occupation, slightly sloping topography offering Western frank perspective on a nearby hill characterized the site. It remained to design the cottage for the family follower of outdoor activities in general and especially winter sports, cherished by many ski resorts nearby. Under these conditions, the “mud room” quickly became one of the architectural program elements around which the spaces are deployed to. Central, accessible through the main entrance as the service entrance, it is integrated into the flow of the cottage.
