A single dwelling composed of three angular masses connected by a podium base, this wood-clad Quebec chalet is shaped around the trio of sculptural skylights that bathe its interiors in stupendous light. It’s this celestial feature (inspired by the nearby abbey of Saint-Benoît-du-Lac, an architectural wonder) and architect Stéphane Rasselet’s reverent use of simple materials like concrete, wood and steel that imbue the whole with a cathedralesque quality. But the home’s coziness and program are what make it the ultimate retreat. The trapezoidal units each encompass a distinct but interconnected zone — for living, sleeping or working — all beautifully lined in cedar and perfectly poised for lake views.
