Inspired by Nature and Vernacular Design: Gorgeous Contemporary Canadian Chalet
It is always good to create a dwelling that is shaped the landscape than to try the approach the other way around. This not only makes for more beautiful homes, but it also ensures that you leave a footprint that is as minimal as possible while shaping an eco-friendly setting. Nestled in a lovely wooded region of Austin, Canada, the dashing Grand-Pic Chalet designed by APPAREIL architecture is one such getaway where the scenery around the structure along with vernacular design principles helped create its overall form. With a dark exterior that seems ever so classical in its approach and a contrasting interior in white Russian plywood, this little cabin is a world of lovely contrasts indeed!
