Overlooking lac Bernard in the Gatineau Hills, the new cottage is situated on a sloped forested lot facing southwest towards a private bay.
The new cottage is laid out in a linear manner to take full advantage of the view and natural light which travels across the site during the day, with all rooms facing towards the lake. The main entrance foyer to the cottage is accessed from a rear private roadway to the rear of the site and provides a framed view of a small island located in the adjacent bay.
The center of the cottage is located around a double height living/dining area which features an exposed Douglas fir wood post and beam structure, stone fireplace, and ample glass on all sides. Elevated above grade, these rooms float in the tree line and provide a strong connection to the surrounding landscape
