Overlooking Lake Manitou in Ivry-sur-le-Lac, Québec, the home, designed by Canadian architect Richard Rubin from Figurr Architects Collective, is composed of five factory-built modules, each approximately fifty feet long, that were constructed before being shipped to their final destination.

The house, with its unique modular design, was created according to precise plans by the architect. Conceptualized with the vision of creating an extremely low environmental footprint, the house was built using sustainable and local materials. The large windows capture the beauty of nature in all its glory and flood the inside with light. The direct sunshine helps in reducing both heating and lighting costs.

The natural colored outdoor facade blends easily into the woodland decor and the opaque black accents add an artistic flair. The wood used indoors is warm and welcoming.

The house interior was designed so that each member of the family has their own personal space. The ground floor’s open concept has a large kitchen and dining area where everyone enjoys cooking and eating delicious meals together, a beautiful, cozy living room space, and a three-season screened-in porch surrounded by lake and woods.

The ground floor also has an atelier for painting and carpentry. The lowered lakeside deck was designed as to not disturb the view of the magnificent scenery.

The architect is in the process of applying for a LEED Gold certification for his home.
