Designed for a busy city Montreal household, T HOUSE presents the household a retreat within the nation in Quebec’s Japanese Townships. Natalie Dionne Structure was impressed by the writings of Pliny the Youthful, whose descriptions of two Italian villas conjure the creativeness to “ponder one’s place within the surrounding panorama.”
Located excessive up a hillside on a plateau, the house is surrounded by forests of timber with views of the valleys under and mountains within the distance.
Referencing the inspiration, the residence is made up of two volumes – a 2-story dice clad in wooden siding and a single story rectangular construction, coated in composite cement panels, the place one aspect cantilevers out over the hill.
Nestled between the 2 volumes is area enclosed by glass panels on two sides. The empty area reveals views of the Appalachian Mountains on the far aspect.
The house’s plan is organized within the form of a letter ‘T’, with one half accommodating the lounge, one half the visitor rooms, and one other half housing the kitchen with main bedroom above it. Central to those three elements is the eating space that pulls the complete design collectively.
Water was necessary to the design and features a pool, water backyard, and a close-by stream that flows to a pond under.
Constructed-in furnishings was included, like the fireside and bookshelves in the lounge.
White oak paneling is used on the partitions of the inside, bringing a little bit of the country outside vibe inside. The flooring are manufactured from concrete and pure stone that’s outfitted with hydronic heating to heat the area throughout colder months.
