The Roy-Lawrence Residence by Chevalier Morales Architectes is a Canadian country home in Sutton, Montreal. As the family’s roots go back to Switzerland, the design includes accents such as a Swiss chalet. The house’s Swiss elements and contemporary look give it a distinct appearance. There are three layers to this angular building, such that the wooden frame stands on a concrete base and is shaded below a large roof. On the same level as the wooden frame, there is a line of windows offering a panoramic view of the surrounding forests and fields (or snow).
