Chalet Potton was developed by BOOM TOWN and finished in 2017. Designed on a 2800 square foot area in Mansonville, Canada, the cottage provides four large bedrooms and a dormitory to accommodate more than a dozen people where they can mingle with the surrounding nature.
The Chalet Potton
The Chalet Potton consists of four cubic areas blended together around a central space. You can access the site by crossing from the arrival level to the lowest level that leads to the lake.
The site’s wide openings allow the inhabitants to appreciate the surrounding nature.
Cedar and Spruce Wide Openings
The areas can be distinguished easily thanks to cedar and spruce wood coverings found in the cottage’s composition. White wooden paneling was utilized in the central core. It extends under the porch of the main entrance, accommodating the occupants.
A Large Terrace
With a large terrace, everyone can enjoy the wooded area where the lake allows its mysterious presence filter through. An invisible guardrail makes it possible to have a large staggering balcony reaches out toward the Memphremagog below from the master bedroom. It also protects a part of the terrace under.
The Cottage Interior
The firm used dark and brighter color palette to make an interesting contrast in the interior. This living room, for instance, has white walls combined with darker furniture and bolder accents.
Most materials are dominated by stained wood, marble, concrete, quartz, and porcelain.
At the base of the curtain wall in the dining area, there is a large folding door that allows the occupants to view the lake outside.
If opened, the folding door makes the dining space larger to receive a large number of guests when the weather is accommodating.
Skylights adorn the cottage’s white ceiling in every space, including the bedrooms on the upper floor.
This bedroom has access to balcony with a seating area to enjoy the surrounding nature from above. The glass sliding door is huge enough to let natural light fills the space. Other bedrooms come with lofted-beds to accommodate more people inside.
This bedroom has two lofted-beds as well as a direct access to go outside through the glass door.
