“Nook Residence” in Canada Blends with the Winter Landscape

architecture modern residenceThe Nook Residence by MU Architecture is located in a quiet area of the Eastern Townships in Quebec, Canada. Turning its back to the street, it offers a virtually blind facade that encourages discovery and piques curiosity. Strategically located windows and a large opening in the white mass give a hint at the beautiful scenery below.

The house clings to the steep terrain and seems to be projecting toward Lake Memphremagog. Like origami, the two volumes are linked by a dynamic bending ribbon that merges the roofs together.
modern residence (1)Inside, the sequence of open living spaces on the ground floor unveils different views of the lake. Separating public from private spaces, a relaxation and contemplation area comes in as a pause in the architecture discovery course.

Polished concrete radiant floors, black ceramic tiles and walnut furniture punctuate the space with elegance. Two large bedrooms, a bathroom and a dormitory with apparent board-formed concrete walls mainly compose the ground level.

Acting as a landmark through the lush summer, the house changes with the seasons and its whiteness blends into the winter landscape as a tribute to the great Quebec winters. [Information provided by MU Architecture; Photography: Ulysse Lemerise Bouchard- YUL Photo]

What You Can Expect From a $25-30,000 Kitchen Remodel

(Image credit: Chris Loves Julia)

At this budget range, kitchen renovations mean less actual physical labor for the homeowners, who are able to leave most of that work to the professionals. That doesn’t mean a total hands off approach however. The owners of these kitchens either acted as their own general contractor, designed the space themselves, and shopped vigilantly for the best deals out there. The sky wasn’t the limit, but all of them are very happy with their new appliances and cabinetry, custom elements, and updated fixtures and hardware.
