A tribute to Italian design in the middle of the Canadian jungle: a residential home designed by Jean Verville Architects.

The dark wood building almost disappears under a canopy of autumn leaves. According to Jean Verville Architects, it was built by “two beloved freaks” who are passionate about art and design from Italy in the 1980s.

And so the architects found inspiration for the small ensemble in Memphis Group of designs: their goal was to fill the everyday lives of their clients “with a playful energy.” The latter is especially evident on the inside: the surface, color and material interact with light to add to the kaleidoscope reflections.

In addition to the forest, a stream characterizes the area: the building offers a view of the trees and the water on the south side. On the north side, a fully glazed entrance door connects the two volumes to form a single fa├žade. In addition, the two halves of the building are spanned by a single roof. (May)

In almost every room, surfaces reflect the light and nature outside.
