In the Acadian village of Caraquet, YH2 Architecture raised two identical cabins on a site 200 feet from the sandy shores of Chaleur Bay. The home is inhabited by a single family and used as a vacation spot.
The simple materials and forms represent continuity with traditional Acadian architecture. The retreat is sheathed in metal sheets.
A glazed passage links the two pitched-roof structures. This intermediary space provides the most unobstructed views of the sea.
The first of the sister volumes contains the living areas, while the second houses the bedrooms and garage.
The home claimed one of the last unoccupied lots in tiny Caraquet.
