With La Cadrée Perchée, L’Empreinte Design Architecture offers constant interaction with the outdoors through a home that reflects light and frames a wild, rejuvenating, and inspiring environment. As a demonstration of symbiosis with nature, this achievement reflects the benefits of architecture on the well-being and mental health of users.

 

In the heart of a maple grove, high up in the mountains bordering Lac Franc in Morin-Heights, in the Laurentians region of Quebec, this 8-room, 2,100-square-foot residence was created by and for Pier-Olivier Lepage, founder of L'Empreinte Design Architecture. The entrepreneur's vision was to take advantage of the vital energy of nature on a daily basis.

 

 

"I spend a lot of time working from home," he explains. "However, I concentrate better when I feel connected to the outdoors. Otherwise, I am distracted by thoughts of going out to enjoy the outdoors."
