The Slender House Residence has a beautiful linear structure and is located in the region of the Eastern Townships near the US border in Quebec.
The architects from MU Architecture restored the natural beauty of this 4500-square-foot residence. The house is solidly anchored in the rock thanks to its numerous stone retaining walls and paved terraces.
Except for the massive appearance, the locally supplied granite volumes serve as bases on which rests an impressive 111 feet long roof with bladelike sharp edges.
The discreet and fascinating architectural approach gives us the impression of sinking into the ground between a hanging garden and the house. A huge glass bay window marks the entrance from which a view of the lake is immediately revealed.
The interiors of the house are bright and airy, in contrast with the wild appearance of the outdoor surroundings.
Moreover, large bay-windows, skylights and immaculate white walls literally flood the space with light and offer breathtaking views of the lake.
Because of the linear structure, all the rooms of the Slender house are positioned to form one single linear row. In addition to the master’s suite, two high-end suites with full bathrooms and small adjoining lounge, a sauna and a training room compose the sleeping area of this luxurious house.
