I really like this residence known as the “Tree Home” by Pauline Tremblay and Pierre Léveillé. Situated in Quebec’s Japanese Townships, it’s the first house at Sanctuaire Mont Cathédrale, a housing enterprise designed to combine into its setting by means of using sustainable provides and utilized sciences.
“The Sanctuaire is the outcomes of higher than ten years of reflection on one straightforward question: Do we have got to be outdoor to experience nature?” says enterprise supervisor Pierre Séveillé. The idea was to create a home throughout which one may experience nature as intently as attainable. Impressed by a tree, the house’s first flooring is roofed in picket to characterize a tree trunk. I really like the second flooring, which is roofed in copper tiles, or “leaves,” which may, over time, develop a inexperienced patina similar to its surrounding vegetation.
The residence may also be warmth and pure inside, however as well as fashionable. The harmonious use of picket, marble, quartz, metallic, glass, and porcelain along with the picket beams convey the floor in. I’d utterly keep proper right here.
