On the opposite wing of the house is a master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in closet. The lower level houses two additional bedrooms, each with their own bathroom.

Upon entering is a service corridor that links the garage to the main house and provides access to a series of rooms, including a washroom, a laundry room, a workout area with large glass walls, and a sauna. A pantry connects to the kitchen through a secret door.
The Slender House comprises a two-storey rectangular volume built into a grassy slope, using masonry retaining walls to hold back the earth. Both floors have ground-level access due to the site’s incline.
A Blade on the Rock This 4500-square-foot residence is solidly anchored in the rock thanks to its numerous stone retaining walls and paved terraces. Massive dry stacked, locally supplied granite volumes serve as bases on which rests an impressive 111 feet long roof with bladelike sharp edges. From the street, the roof literally becomes a fifth facade.

An open-plan kitchen and living room take up the central portion of the upper floor, with a large white dining table positioned in the middle.
Setting the residence on such a steep ground necessitated the construction of numerous retaining walls offering a great opportunity to develop hanging gardens. Illuminated in the evening, this cascade of vegetation is fully appreciated from the inside and enchants the place. The Slender house comes as a contemporary reinterpretation of the Bungalow of the 1960s slicing tradition with elegance.
A large glass wall and side door are designed as the main entryway, and are located next to a stone courtyard, with steps leading up to a two-car garage with a black door.
Kitchen cabinetry and built-in storage along the fireplace are designed to conceal appliances and a television, and are coloured white to appear as an extension of the walls.

Precisely detailed to fit seamlessly within the black wooden exterior walls, a large garage door sits between the massive stone volumes. The discreet and fascinating approach gives us the impression of sinking into the ground between a hanging garden and the house. As one makes his way along these dark and massive facades towards the main access courtyard, a huge glass bay window marks the entrance from which a view of the lake is immediately revealed. The austere and rough appearance of the exterior stands in contrast with the very large, bright and airy interiors of the house.

Mu Architecture designed the house as a contemporary reinterpretation of a bungalow from the 1960s. “From the street, the roof literally becomes a fifth facade,” said studio co-founders Charles Côté and Jean-Sébastien Herr. “The discreet and fascinating approach gives us the impression of sinking into the ground between a hanging garden and the house.”
A tiered wooden deck off the back of the house has a large eight-person dining table, creating more space for entertaining. The backyard is planted with low-lying shrubbery and flowers, with stone steps leading down to the lakefront and boathouse.
The longest elevation is lined with windows that overlook Lake Memphremagog — a glacial lake that reaches into the northernmost part of Vermont. “All the rooms of the house are positioned to form one single linear row,” said the studio.
Canadian studio MU Architecture has integrated a lake house into a steep site in southern Quebec, overlooking a secluded bay and private boathouse.
Vast and brightLarge bay-windows, skylights and immaculate white walls literally flood the space with light and offer breathtaking views of the lake. At times reaching 25 feet high, ceilings stretch to augment the amplitude of these living spaces. All the rooms of the Slender house are positioned to form one single linear row. In addition to the master’s suite, two high-end suites with full bathrooms and small adjoining lounge, a sauna and a training room compose the program of this luxurious house. A service corridor that connects the main entrance to the ground-floor entrance doubles as the entrance to the garage and gives access to a small washroom, laundry room and pantry that connects to the kitchen through a secret door.
The Slender House is located close to the US border, a popular location for remote residences that act as escapes to nature. Examples of projects in the surrounding area include a black A-frame cottage by Jean Verville, a contemporary farmhouse with light timber walls by LAMAS, and another house that has been integrated into a hillside with pilotis by Atelier General.
Steps connect the home’s split levels across the varied terrain. A minimal colour palette of white walls, light oak flooring, and grey and black accents decorates the home.

The kitchen and the built-in furniture of the fireplace that conceals the television were designed down to the smallest detail to mask all the technical aspects. The whiteness of the kitchen is revealed as an extension of the walls and ceilings while the island is born from the extension of the floors that are covered in large blades of white oak.
The residence measures 4,500 square feet (418 square metres), with an exterior faced with black wood around portions of glazing, along with areas clad in local granite. An over-sized black roof spans 111 feet (34 metres), and pitches to 25 feet (7.5 metres) inside.
A feeling of lightness Worthy of the big hotels, the minutia of the details, the richness of the materials and the control of the lines exude this soothing feeling of lightness. Using the same material as the residence, a boathouse on the lake also offers an extra kitchenette and a magnificent roof terrace to enjoy the sunsets.
