Black charred cedar creates bold look for this Quebec lake house

Ghoche Architecte has designed this contemporary house that was built on a quiet lake located in Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci, near St-Donat, Quebec, Canada.

This was the dream location for owners who wanted to build a sober and modern chalet, integrated and respectful of its natural environment.

The choice of materials and the layout were very thoughtfully designed for this family of four, including their two teenagers.

The exterior facade of the lake house is covered in cedar from Quebec and charred to give it a natural black color.

Open-area dining room with extra large windows to enjoy maximum sunlight and nature. The floors are concrete with integrated heating. The minimalist fireplace features wood storage integrated into the wall.

The central activity of the chalet is concentrated around one living space — the kitchen. This becomes the starting point of the design around which all the other functions revolve.

The exterior veranda is linked to the living spaces and protected by screens to keep the bugs out.

This main bedroom features an extra-large window with a lake view.
