L’Accostée House is a contemporary chalet on the shores of Lac St-François in the Canadian Adstock area. Designed by Bourgeois / Lechasseur architectes the house was completed in 2017.
This contemporary house is distinguished by the expression of the wooden structure. The exposed beams indoors continue outdoors emphasizing the effect of transparency towards the lake. The roof overhang protects the south-facing glass facade from overheating in the summer. The house reveals itself gradually, through its different levels. The host welcomes friends and family around the large U-shaped island in a friendly and unifying atmosphere. The master bedroom, set back from the living areas, offers peaceful views of the cedars outside, while the children’s rooms, located on the upper floor, are accessible by the catwalk. The staircase connecting the three levels is light and dynamic: it runs along the red cedar wall and leads to the garden floor. This level reveals a well-kept secret, an indoor swimming pool in the heart of the house. It is accessed by crossing the Paleolithic mosaic that adorns the walls of the shower. Natural light sweeps over the wall at the end of the long pool, beckoning swimmers.
