Chalet Lac Champlain by Boom Town

“This cottage is located near Lake Champlain, a few meters away from the American border at the height of the Phillipsburg Bird Sanctuary.

The landscape is composed of two plateaus separated by a 10 meters sheer cliff and of a gentle slope access to the lake; a rare privilege for this area. This landform offers a wonderful sight line to the west facing this vast lake.

This three storey cottage acts as an observation post on the natural settings. The vertical circulation in the cottage creates views both on the cliff, on which the building almost leans, and the lake; thinly veiled by tree trunks. The rooms are full of windows.

Two large terraces, on the superior level on the south side allow the occupants to live in the landscape and to pursue their contemplation. Those terraces induce segmentation of the volumes already separated by a subtle offset between the south, north and central parts (where the stairs are). This play in the volume is accentuated by color variation or by installing wooded covering.”
