Lake House Living at Chalet Lac Gate in Quebec by BOOM TOWN

Chalet Lac Gate-Atelier BOOM TOWN-01-1 Kindesign

Chalet Lac Gate is a beautiful cottage designed by Atelier BOOM TOWN, nestled in the woods on the shores of the Gate Lake in Harrington, Quebec. The residence is sited on a slightly sloping land of almost 80,000 square feet, the cottage is located near the border of a mature cedar wooded area with inclined majestic trunks.

Although the footprint of this two-storey building is substantial, the roofs follow the site’s slope in order to minimize the volume and harmonize its integration in the landscape. To access the main entrance, which is located on the superior level, you must pass through an exterior portico protected by a roof.

The lower level, where the common living areas are located (living room, kitchen, dining room) is at the same level as the surrounding ground outside, allowing easy access to the land by many doors on the tree facades near the lake. A large terrace next to the master bedroom offers the clearest view of the lake and plenty of sunlight for the occupants.

The extremities of the two circulation axes, that serve the interior spaces, end with an aperture offering a unique picture of the landscape.

The cottage’s exterior covering is made of stones and cedar, natural and site specific materials. Roofs are covered with zinc finish steel that partially turn toward the facades as a protective case, while letting the beauty of the landscape enter the heart of the project.
