Montreal-based NatureHumaine designed this two-storey country house, called Bolton Residence, which is in perfect symbiosis with surrounding environment in the municipality of Bolton East, near the Quebec-Vermont border. The house is characterized by two stacked volumes; a wooden clad volume anchored into the mountain supports a cantilevering ground floor volume above. This gable roofed volume raised into the air gives the sensation that the house is floating amongst the trees. Vast views of Mount Orford and the valley below are framed by a long horizontal strip window. The kitchen and master bathroom are carved out of a black volume at the center of the house dividing living spaces from the master bedroom.
