The Malbaie V ‘Le Phare’ is a stunning home located in the region of Cap-à-l’Aigle, more specifically in the heart of Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada.
Montreal based studio Mu Architecture has recently completed this beautiful home towards the end of 2010. The two story home is quite spacious spanning 2,400 square feet, and resides on a luscious hillside offering incredible views of La Malbaie, the St. Lawrence River, and of course the mountains surrounding the property.
“On the ground floor, the sequence from the entrance to the main room allows for discovery through large continuous open plan absent of any apparent structure. An abundance of openings from east to west, the result of a perfect combination of solar motion, orientation and views sought, provides permanent natural light as well as optimal energy efficiency. The lower level accommodates four bedrooms and two full bathrooms arranged in a linear way following a clear axis perpendicular to the main volume above allowing for each room to get a view. The simplicity of the materials used, types of natural wood for the floor and ceiling accentuates the dramatic perspective of the main corridor”.
