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.
