A Modern Cottage on the Edge of the Forest

This modern version of a traditional cottage sits on the edge of the forest, right between a grassy, green marsh and a valley in Montréal, Canada. Dubbed the Panorama House, the rectangular structure was designed by Blouin Tardif Architecture-Environnement with dark stained Eastern cedar shingles and a pitched metal roof.
