This A-frame chalet is nestled atop the hills in Eastern Québec. It's built into the mountainside with views onto the ski hill and high above the lakes and rivers below.
Inspired by ski chalets in the Alpes, the A-frame is supported by massive Fir wood beams with large windows that open up into the surrounding forest and mountain.
Building on a mountain isn't easy! The excavation was a challenge with hundreds of truckloads of rock and rubble removed in order to create a stable foundation for the A-frame.
Local Artists & Craftspeople
Local artists and craftspeople were commissioned to produce custom artwork on the concrete base of the central staircase.
An "actual-size" template of this stair was created out of wood and tested out onsite before the metal stair was produced and installed.
