On a wooded lot on the shore of Charlebois Lake, the clients wanted to build a contemporary house, luminous and open to the nature.
Paul Bernier has design this house in a terrain that is slightly sloping. An “L” shape plan was chosen for the house. At the meeting point of the 2 wings of the “L”, was created a two-story volume. On the ground floor there is a garage and the upstairs houses a guest bedroom and an office.
