A glass-paneled house situated on a gentle slope in the middle of a Canadian forest by Montreal-based architecture firm Daoust Lestage. Contained completely by glass on all four sides, the house appears almost camouflaged during the day thanks to its reflective surfaces that mirrors the surrounding vegetation, blurring the borders between natural and artificial. The floor and ceiling are made from thin slabs of pale stone and the house is raised above the forest floor to appear as if it’s floating. Despite the spatial restrictions, the house includes two bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room, a utility area and a basement. The natural features of the landscape have been left intact and special measures have been taken to minimize the potential impact.pAUUwpOlvS8 Pavillon du Lac by Daoust Lestage Design
