Happy Canada Day to our neighbors to the north! To celebrate, we’ve compiled the top ten projects to have come out of the Canadian architectural world in the last few years or so. Both large and small, public and private, the projects pay testament to Canada’s architectural talent and, as you’ll see, to the beauty of the country’s diverse landscape. So go on and click through! We promise, no maple syrup jokes.
The Malbaie V Residence in Charlevoix, Canada has to be one of the most picturesque and bloggable projects we’ve seen this year. Designed by MU architecture, the home is comprised of two interlocking volumes–a long box that projects out towards the mouth of the St. Lawrence River which rests atop a smaller, more compact cube that houses the bedrooms. With its green garden, lush material palette (with red cedar sourced from British Columbia), and breathtaking views, it’s the stuff of tourism campaigns.
