Hill-Maheux Cottage by Kariouk Associates

A new modern cottage provides a relaxing retreat in the undeveloped forests north of Ottowa in Quebec, Canada.  The Hill-Maheux Cottage by Kariouk Associates is open to the untouched nature around it, while the front of the home is walled-off for peaceful privacy.  The home comprises two rectangular sections on the bottom level with a lofted bedroom adjoining them from above.  An open kitchen looks out into a dining area and a living room with floor-to-ceiling glass on three sides.  The green trees, pine needle forest floor and the blue lake below is visually taken into the home in that stunning seat above.  The best way to escape the bustle of nearby Ottowa and Montreal is to head into the serene woods around them, and this weekend house provides the perfect kind of shelter.
