Placed down a trail, about ten minutes from the lodge, the La Pointe House offers a modern micro-shelter at Canada's Poisson Blanc Regional Park. The off-grid cabin is reminiscent of a traditional A-frame with a sharp, triangular form and cedar cladding. Its warm, natural finish will weather over time allowing the exterior to fade into the surrounding forest. Internally, natural light and minimal furnishings create a spacious atmosphere for the modest interior that consists of just a kitchenette and dining table that converts into a sleeping area. Suspended by steel rods, a bed floats above the main floor and can be accessed by an inclined ladder. Large panels of glazing frame in views of the landscape while also expanding the living space outdoors to a covered terrace.
