Chalet_A: A Cozy and Sustainable Getaway in Estrie, Canada
Introducing Chalet_A, an exquisitely renovated 3-seasons beach house located in Estrie, Canada near Montréal. Originally an A-frame cottage built in the 1950s, Matière Première Architecture and its construction company, Nu Drom, were tasked with bringing this historic structure into the 21st century.
Described as a cozy, intimate experience, the design embraces lighter tones of white and sage, along with casual furnishings, to create a relaxed atmosphere. Local, sustainable materials were used to promote controlled aging of the cabin, while an ecological approach was taken to protect the natural landscape.
