Window on the Lake by YH2

So many lakes. So many beautiful lakehouses. This particularly perfect one is by Montreal architecture practice YH2 and is located on the shores of Lac Plaisant in the Mauricie region of Quebec. 

The 1507 sqf waterfront cabin features an exterior entirely clad in pale cedar boards and an interior of exposed wooden studs and joists.  Inside a double height living space opens south through a fully glazed wall toward the lake, with two bedrooms to the rear and a large sleeping area on the second floor. 

Not a bad way to start the summer!

YH2 is an architectural design firm founded in 1994 by architects Marie-Claude Hamelin and Loukas Yiacouvakis.
