Malbaie VI Marée Basse by Mu Architecture


Montreal-based studio Mu Architecture has designed the Malbaie VI “La Marée” project.

Completed in September 2011, this 3,200 square foot 2 story home is located in the magnificent region of Cap-à-l’Aigle in the heart of Charlevoix, Quebec, Canada.

The Malbaie VI residence is part of Les Terrasses Cap-à-l’Aigle, a unique residential hillside development offering stunning views of La Malbaie, the St. Lawrence River and the surrounding mountains. The concept of the residence revolves around 2 off-centered volumes positioned in such a way to take in as much sunlight as possible and to make the most out of the different viewpoints. These 2 volumes seem to emerge from the forest and project themselves towards the River and La Malbaie. The whole house forms an angle that embraces a huge private terrace at the lower level.

At the center of the house, an architectural red metal spiral staircase acts like a pivot to the 2 principal axes. The living room, dining room and kitchen are connected to this staircase which incidentally serves as an ever-present visual signal. The radiant concrete floor and the foundation walls are left rough accentuating the contrast with the cedar ceiling. The kitchen, ergonomic and very contemporary, contains a large island counter which is used as a work surface and a dining table. It sits in front of a large panoramic window offering stunning views over the river.
