A home and guest house on the Magdalen Islands
A few weeks in the past I went to lunch with a team of managers from function and just one of them who happens to be really French, was speaking about how wonderful les les-de-la-Madeleine are, or as the English individuals contact them, the Magdalen Islands. I experienced by some means never ever listened to this modest archipelago right before, found in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence (and whilst section of Québec, the islands are in truth nearer to the Maritime provinces and Newfoundland). A ridiculous coincidence that about a week back while I was perusing the portfolio of Montréal architecture business La Lose (that I am admittedly obsessed with) I arrived throughout a undertaking in their portfolio called Les Rochers, positioned on the southernmost island of the Magdalens, known as l’île du Havre Aubert. La Shed intended a solitary loved ones property and guest residence in this amazing setting. Inspired by the classic gabled home, the architects are proposing a present-day edition whose asymmetrical shape is a nod to the Maison des les and its drum. Each and every in their own way, the two residences combine the drum into the household, unified in a single quantity. The inside architecture of the two residences is imbued with the aesthetics of seaside properties. The interior structure is meticulous, but remains sober. The guest household is like a holiday getaway property reminiscent of the rusticity of fishermen’s huts, the environment is comfortable. The primary home is larger sized and far more refined. The line operate is loaded and fragile, giving depth and texture to the interiors. Architects produce a well balanced language for comforting interiors.
