This single story residence nestles itself between the surrounding trees on a steeply sloped lot in Morin-Heights, Québec, Canada. Dubbed the Blue Hills Home, the residence was designed as a refuge for a family looking to escape the urban life and head to a more natural environment. The homeowners hired La SHED architecture to create a retreat that would blend in and be discreet in its location while from the inside, making it feel completely open to its surroundings.
Throughout the year, the landscape changes depending on the season, giving the homeowners constant, ever-changing views to enjoy.
The long, rectangular design holds 2300 square feet of space with plenty of large windows to take in the views. They went that shape to avoid disturbing too much of the existing trees.
The exterior is clad in vertical eastern cedar slats, similar to the bark on the trees, that will age over the years.
