An innovative and space-savvy modern home in white that is surrounded by greenery, enlivened by wild flowers and offers amazing views of Saint-Lawrence River and beyond, Le Lupin House designed by Atelier Pierre Thibault is definitely one-of-a-kind. The small house sits next to more traditional beach homes and cottages in the neighborhood and embraces its color palette that is predominantly dominated by white. But the uniqueness of the home goes well beyond that with a spiral staircase connected the three different levels of the house and a neutral color scheme being accentuated by the restrained use of accent hues.
Vertical latticework around the house does much more than just provide visual contrast as it protects the lower level of the house harsh sunlight while offering those inside ample privacy. It is the bedrooms that are nestled on the lower level of the home with the spacious, open-plan living space, kitchen and dining on the upper floor. The house was designed to serve as a secondary home for a modern family and with its compact design, it is the lush green outdoors that make the biggest impact in here.
A series of terraces on the upper level extend the living area outside in a seamless manner and the color scheme also finds its way on to these outdoor areas. Space-conscious, well-lit and filled with relaxing modern décor, the home welcomes nature indoors gleefully. [Photography: Maxime Brouillet]
