Family residence in the mountains – Chevalier Morales Arch.

Located outside the village of Sutton, in Quebec’s eastern townships, Roy Lawrence residence is set on a site impregnated with the legacy of the Schweiser, a Swiss immigrant family that came to settle in the thirties in this vast hilly land. Located mountainside, the site offers a spectacular view of the valley and the surrounding mountains.The Swiss Chalet served as conceptual reference to the development of the house. The composition of three traditional parts of the Swiss chalet consists of a sturdy stone base, a solid-wood frame and a strong protective roof. The reinterpretation of the traditional elements implemented here consists of a stack of three long and simple strata: a solid concrete base anchored to a rocky ground, a beam frame allowing a very wide opening on the landscape and a large protective roof projecting itself into an important cantilever over the garage entrance.
