Live your nordicity

Our architectural objective is based on a natural balance between minimalist cabins and the landscapes they’re anchored in. We wanted to create living environments that reflect our ability to adapt to the environment, and that is why we have designed, with APPAREIL Architecture, different models of cabins located on land with different vegetation and topography. You choose a model, not an address.


The Lanaudière is its immense forests and friendly people. It’s the diversity of its countless lakes and an equally rich land. It’s a region that is still too unknown and that asks to be explored. Thanks, among other things, to a meeting with a Lanaudière local who wanted his immense playground to be preserved for generations to come: welcome to our home.

Appareil Architecture

APPAREIL Architecture had a clear vision: harmonize architectural spaces with the nordicity of a century-old forest. After long walks on the site, the firm observed its peculiarities, its trees, and its cliffs, so that the living environments of the project fit into the landscapes and allow for reconnecting with nature. This resulted in optimized spaces that are neither too big nor too small, with built-in furniture for people to come together — all in an architectural setting designed to house moments of complicity.

À hauteur d’homme

The kitchen, designed by À Hauteur d’homme, focuses on the reduction of space and the durability of materials. The heart of the cabin, the kitchen revolves around a central island that commands the space. Its drawer design blends into the wood of the walls to bring together basic ingredients: functionality and resistance to the passage of time.


Lambert & fils

In collaboration with APPAREIL Architecture, Lambert & Fils created a lighting system with the idea of reproducing the warmth and natural quality of candles or oil lamps. These light fixtures with simple lines are made from raw aluminum and are connected to a dimmer to regulate the mood, while using the ceiling as a reflector to illuminate the entire cabin.
