Tucked away in the Gatineau hills of Quebec, the Val-des-Monts cottage enjoys capacious views of the surrounding forested area. Situated on a tree-studded slope, the house has been embedded into the side of the valley, jutting outwards and overlooking the lake below. Designed by Christopher Simmonds Architecture, the sleeping quarters have been firmly set into the rock while the communal areas emerge outwards on the upper level. The interior emanates a warm modernism, with vast window expanses paired with white oak wooden panelling which wraps from floor to wall.
