Baie Sablonneuse Chalet - Lac Manitou, Quebec
This compact lakefront chalet with adjacent guest studio is located in the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal, just outside the town of Ste-Agathe-des-Monts and 30 minutes south of the Mont Tremblant ski resort. The property is a forested hillside, private and expansive. The lake is large, quiet and pristine. The site — a rugged saddle of land, behind a treed promontory with flanking bays — cued the architect’s selection of simple materials and angular geometry.
