CONTEMPORIST: A Black Exterior And New Living Spaces Were Part Of Remodeling An Old Log Cabin Into A Contemporary Home

Paul Bernier Architecte has completed the contemporary remodel of a log cabin that’s located on a rocky point that juts out into a lake in Quebec, Canada.

A log cabin with a stone foundation has a modern extension and porch.

As part of the remodel, the architects added a second level and a screened-in porch. The stone foundation, anchored on the rock cap from which the site is made, and the black exterior, helps to integrate the cabin into its natural environment.

The bright interior of the cabin is a strong contrast to the exterior. The entryway shows off a light wood ceiling, while the floor is a black tile with a chevron pattern.

Steps connect the entryway to the main social areas of the cabin. Highlighted by a black door and glass walls, is a dedicated wine storage area. Adjacent to the wine wall is a fireplace and small sitting room with angled windows.

Back inside, the main living room has a U-shaped sofa that takes advantage of the window views. There’s also a second stone fireplace surround, this one, however, separates the living room and the kitchen.
