AZ Awards 2022 Finalist: La Maison du Cap by Atelier Pierre Thibault

This cedar-clad house in Saint-Joachim, Quebec, both contrasts and complements its locale. It is sturdy and wide, a counterpoint to the verticality of the surrounding forest, and has a double-skin system that fortifies the interiors against wind. Other features, however, pay homage to the natural environment. The openwork lath panels on the exterior terraces mimic the rhythm of the neighbouring trees, and the pitched roof evokes nearby Mont-Sainte-Anne. The house is sited on a headland and has generous wraparound porches, making it feel protective, like an island within an island.
