The Quebec firm Architecturama is intent on integrating sustainable and bioclimatic concepts in their work with a penchant for low-tech simple solutions. A striking example of their work is this house in Alberta nominated for the Prix d’excellence en architecture 2015.

Whether visiting alone, with a large group of guests or as a family, the owners were looking for a relaxed, welcoming environment, conceptually similar to a cottage yet more refined, particularly in the relationships among spaces and between people. The goal was to have a present, living and enthusiastic architecture that engages the senses. The design process, grounded in the setting, symbiosis with the site and a reduced environmental footprint, led to a reflection process on the functional elements and their optimization.
