A Wooden Lakeside House By Paul Bernier


Architectural practice Paul Bernier created ‘Chalet Estérel’, a wooden house located between a stream and slope at Lac Grenier in Quebec, Canada. The angular design of the single-story structure features wooden elements throughout the building including a large hickory wall as well as a wood-floored deck on the roof. The house was inspired by the rugged surrounding nature. On the concept behind it, the architect says: “Its meandering shape is determined by the opportunities offered by the surrounding landscape. The structure bends, opens, and narrows like a river carving its own path.”
