Chalet Massawippi is a vacation home designed by Canadian architect Gabriel Ostiguy.

From the architect: This project, developed in parallel with my master’s studies in architecture, allowed me to explore the integration of the built form with a natural context “of superior interest”. Set up along the shores of Lake Massawippi in the Eastern Townships, the project acts as a point of view on an untouched nature.

The neutrality of its form and its indigenous materiality are intended to inscribe in a sober and delicate way the building in its context. Intensive site supervision and active participation in the design and implementation of the integrated furniture gave me a practical overview of the different scales of resolution of a building.

Cascading Courts Residence by HYLA Architects

A series of cascading courts between the house and the party wall forms the basis by which this semi-detached house is organized. From the outside one is scarcely able to see these courtyards due to the screening and deep shadows.
