It is a strange look for a simple house. Well, that was the purpose of the design. At a more careful analysis, we see that this is actually a traditional classic house except for the roof.

Located in Québec, Canada, La Cornette is a country house designed by YH2 for two families. It’s meant to serve a house for celebrations and holidays. The exterior design, as well as the interior are somewhat traditional, but in two very different ways. The interior is made in wood, both natural and painted, with a simple and comfortable look.
