Located in Quebec, Canada, the house designed by the Paris-based architecture studio Delordinaire stands on a snow-laden slope and is elevated with stilts.
Named ‘High House‘, the structure is clad with white concrete panels and corrugated metal, while its interior is made in wood to underline the warmth of the living spaces. In addition, the inside of the house is well-lit all day long thanks to its big windows. “This winter chalet uses the stilt typology to create a protected ground floor area with an outdoor stove, providing an unusual space where residents can be among nature and the snowy exterior, while still enjoying protection from the elements,” say the architects.
