The modern chalet called Panorama is located on the rocks of Saint-Siméon, Quebec (Canada) and is built upon the project of Architecture Casa bureau. The house is constructed on the rocky terrain, along St. Lawrence River in Charlevoix region. The authors of the project have made an effort to create the perfect harmony with the surrounding nature. The building is constructed on a high opened basis, which allows the running-off mountain water to easily flow under the house. The walls are made of beam and provide the high durability of the construction, which is compliant with the seismic requirements of this region. Energy saving, environmental friendliness and building sustainability facilitate gaining the LEED Gold certificate. The chalet is rent out for nature enthusiasts, who have the opened public zone and 3 bedrooms at their disposal. The house could accommodate up to 10 people at the time. The simple laconic interior and marvelous landscape picture facing St. Lawrence River will provide unforgettable and comfortable recreation.
