Jean Verville architecte Renovates a Canadian A-frame House

Jean Verville architecte worked with the homeowners of an A-frame residence in St Adolfe d’Howard, Canada, to renovate it to better suit the family’s needs. While many architects would hesitate working on a small and complex space such as this, Verville took on the challenge and actually reduced the square footage in order to give it a more open feel.

The cottage was originally built in the 1960s near the Laurentian Mountains and didn’t work for a modern family.

The new living room looks out to the surrounding landscape, framing relaxing views of nature. It connects to an outdoor space and a modest kitchen.

The new living area feels open and airy, benefitting from the now opened up triangular space and minimalist interior. Most surfaces are a clean white and that’s paired with light wood flooring and simple furnishings.

In the girls’ room, two beds rest atop a platform that hides storage underneath. A little alcove in the corner offers a cozy spot for reading.
