Perched on stilts above the hills outside Saint-Ferréol-les-Neiges in Quebec is the High House by Delordinaire. The Montreal-based architecture studio devised the stilted construction to provide balance and stability despite the uneven terrain below, as well as an unobstructed view of nearby Mont Sainte Anne, which can be seen through the massive floor to ceiling windows that cover the lounge area. The structure, built primarily with wood, steel and concrete, features an outdoor living space with a warming stove beneath the base, while the pitched roof up top allows for extra room and easy snow removal. Additionally, the exterior form aligns with the topography of the region’s mountainous landscape.
