Les Jumelles (The Twins)

Caraquet, Canada


Montréal, Canada, 2016-04-18 -

Built in Caraquet village, les Jumelles are two small sister constructions link in order to create a single family holiday house oriented towards the grandiose scenic view of the Baie-des-Chaleurs.

Les Jumelles are simultaneously a peaceful retreat in nature in front of the sea as well as an architectural insertion in the context of the historical Acadian Village that is Caraquet. The site of the project is but a couple of hundred meters from the village’s church and less than 60 meters form the thin sand beaches.

Sober and stripped down architecture inspired by the Acadian vernacular architecture, the house consists of twin looking volumes. The small constructions covered by metal sheets are located in one of the last naturalclearing of the village.

The first entity, largely fenestrated on its south facade, contains the living spaces, while its sister, open on its north end, regroups the bedrooms and the garage.

The sister houses, common to Acadian architecture, stand parallel to each other and are only connected by a glazed passage that acts as a working space offering a panoramic view on the sea. 

Its displacement between the twin sisters and its length offer just the right amount of privacy between entities while also defining a sunbathed courtyard protected from the often violent winds of the area.
