Bolton Residence by Naturehumaine

 have designed the Bolton Residence in the Quebec municipality of East Bolton. This simplistic 1,500 square feet Canadian home is elevated above a rock located on a rugged hillside. The two-story family residence consists of two structures stacked upon one another, where the lower story is a concrete block partially built into the slope.

Having bought a beautiful plot of wooded land in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, the client dreamt of building a country house that would be in perfect symbiosis with its natural environment. This rugged, sloped site came to a natural plateau just below its highest point, becoming the perfect location to erect the house.

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.
